ПРЕДИСЛОВИЕ

PREFACE

Несколько лет тому назад, осматривая Собор Парижской Богоматери или, выражаясь точнее, обследуя его, автор этой книги обнаружил в темном закоулке одной из башен следующее начертанное на стене слово:
A few years ago, while visiting or, rather, rummaging about Notre-Dame, the author of this book found, in an obscure nook of one of the towers, the following word, engraved by hand upon the wall:—
«АМАГКН»
ANANKE.
Эти греческие буквы, потемневшие от времени и довольно глубоко врезанные в камень, некие свойственные готическому письму признаки, запечатленные в форме и расположении букв, как бы указывающие на то, что начертаны они были рукой человека средневековья, и в особенности мрачный и роковой смысл, в них заключавшийся, глубоко поразили автора.
These Greek capitals, black with age, and quite deeply graven in the stone, with I know not what signs peculiar to Gothic caligraphy imprinted upon their forms and upon their attitudes, as though with the purpose of revealing that it had been a hand of the Middle Ages which had inscribed them there, and especially the fatal and melancholy meaning contained in them, struck the author deeply.
Он спрашивал себя, он старался постигнуть, чья страждущая душа не пожелала покинуть сей мир без того, чтобы не оставить на челе древней церкви этого стигмата преступлений или несчастья.
He questioned himself; he sought to divine who could have been that soul in torment which had not been willing to quit this world without leaving this stigma of crime or unhappiness upon the brow of the ancient church.
Позже эту стену (я даже точно не припомню, какую именно) не то выскоблили, не то закрасили, и надпись исчезла.
Afterwards, the wall was whitewashed or scraped down, I know not which, and the inscription disappeared.
Именно так в течение вот уже двухсот лет поступают с чудесными церквами средневековья.
For it is thus that people have been in the habit of proceeding with the marvellous churches of the Middle Ages for the last two hundred years.
Их увечат как угодно – и изнутри и снаружи.
Mutilations come to them from every quarter, from within as well as from without.
Священник их перекрашивает, архитектор скоблит; потом приходит народ и разрушает их.
The priest whitewashes them, the archdeacon scrapes them down; then the populace arrives and demolishes them.
И вот ничего не осталось ни от таинственного слова, высеченного в стене сумрачной башни собора, ни от той неведомой судьбы, которую это слово так печально обозначало, – ничего, кроме хрупкого воспоминания, которое автор этой книги им посвящает.
Thus, with the exception of the fragile memory which the author of this book here consecrates to it, there remains to-day nothing whatever of the mysterious word engraved within the gloomy tower of Notre-Dame,—nothing of the destiny which it so sadly summed up.
