This article considers Julia Kristeva’s novel Murder in Byzantium in the context of some of the most pressing ehtical and political dilemmas faced by Europe today, regarding the role of religion and the inclusion of religious references in the Constitution of the European Union. It traces Kristeva’s remapping of the European tradition, and places feminine creativity at the core of her analysis. I argue that this remapping that revalorizes feminine creativity and sensibility envisions the question of the eternal Europe as an illusion to be endlessly reinvented.
