This article examines the main theme of 'The Apparition of Emilka', namely Jan Pawel Woronicz's prophetic vision of Poland's future. The main function of that prophesy is to offer consolation to a traumatized nation. The article focuses on the numerous echoes of the 'Aeneid' and Virgil's 'Fourth Eclogue' in the poem. Virgil, as we know, was Woronicz's master poet. Another source of inspiration and allusions in his poem can be found in 'The Prophecies of Father Marek the Carmelite'. This book offered Woronicz a reference point for his own vision of Poland's future. It is, as the article shows, a Providential vision of history, modelled on the Old Testament idea of God's covenant with the Chosen People.
