Patmos était ainsi devenu un lieu de rencontre, une sorte de cratère où brûlaient la foi intense, la passion mystique, mais aussi les hérésies. » Le Grec m’a dévisagé, ne cherchant à cacher ni sa surprise, ni son irritation, ni même sa colère. Je lui avais volé ce qui lui appartenait en propre. � Comme un agneau… », a-t-il répété. Et, détournant la tête, parlant d’une voix sourde, lasse et méprisante, il a égrené tout ce qu’il savait sur Paul Déméter. Le Professeur, comme il l’appelait – « Déméter ?
Emporté par l’impatience et la hargne, j’ai juré, blasphémé tout en donnant des coups de pied et d’épaule contre l’huis d’un bois presque noir. Je l’ai martelé à deux poings, maudissant ceux qui m’avaient désigné pour mener à bien cette enquête, m’avaient tendu ce piège, peut-être pour m’éloigner du ministère, me précipiter dans des sables mouvants afin que je m’y étouffe et y disparaisse. Moi, aveuglé, j’avais été heureux de gagner Patmos, d’échapper à la grisaille des bureaux, rêvant de mer et de soleil, de notoriété internationale, victime consentante et naïve des manigances de rivaux dont je ne soupçonnais même pas l’existence.
Je me suis tu. L’émotion m’avait saisi. Je voyais le corps de Déméter poussé, enfoncé, égorgé dans cette niche, son cercueil de pierre. � Un agneau debout comme égorgé », ai-je seulement ajouté, citant le début du verset 6 du chapitre V de l’Apocalypse de Jean. � Il avait sept cornes et sept yeux qui sont les sept esprits de Dieu envoyés à toute la terre », a complété Vassilikos. Tout à coup, une colère, une révolte nourries par l’émotion m’ont submergé. » me suis-je exclamé en m’éloignant.
