The Word and Culture
Osip Mandelstam

...

Yes, the old word is “not of this world,” yet it is more alive than it has ever been. Culture has become the Church. There has been a separation of Church (i.e. culture) and State. Secular life no longer concerns us; we no longer eat a meal, we take a sacrament; we do not live in a room but a cell; we do not dress, we attire ourselves in garments. At least we have found our inner freedom, real inner joy. We drink water in clay jugs as if it were wine, and the sun likes a refectory better than a restaurant. Apples, bread, the potato — from now on they will appease not merely physical but spiritual hunger as well. The Christian — and every cultivated man is a Christian now — knows not a merely physical hunger or a merely spiritual nourishment. For him, the word is also flesh, and simple bread is happiness and mystery.
