The first part of the paper discusses the construct of the body in different disciplines and cultural contexts, and the conceptualisation and phenomenology of the body in European cultural traditions (materialism, idealism, Greece and Judeo-Christian tradition; body, space, spatiality). With this in mind, the second part of the paper examines the elements of the poetics of the body in the novel The Kukotsky Enigma by Lydmila Ulitskaya. The proposed analysis focuses on the phenomena such as the third state, the temporal coding of bodily programmes, and considers the mutual conditioning of internal and external (spiritual and corporal) functions. The last part of the paper raises the issue of nudity and sanctity of the body in the framework of Biblical and Christian axiology.
