This article explores points of contact between "Vos" by Anna M. Louw and a number of related texts, including the following: the book "Job" from the Christian Bible, "Faust" by Goethe, "Voss" by Patrick White and texts forming part of the Gnostic tradition. The analysis describes similarities and differences, arguing that the implication of the points of contact between the various texts is that Vos suggests that the heritage of the Christian Reformation is not adequate for an understanding of life in South Africa, and it has to be supplemented with perspectives from other traditions.

Hierdie artikel verken die raakpunte tussen "Vos" deur Anna M. Louw en enkele ander tekste, soos die Bybelboek "Job", "Faust" deur Goethe, "Voss" deur Patrick White en tekste uit die tradisie van die gnostiek. Ooreenkomste en verskille word beskryf, en daar word betoog dat die raakpunte tussen die onderskeie tekste die implikasie dra dat Vos suggereer die erfenis van die Christelike Hervorming is onvoldoende as basis vir insig in die bestaan in Suid-Afrika en dat dit aangevul moet word met perspektiewe uit ander tradisies.
