An anatomy of metaphors and exegetical statements in Medieval homiletic writing
Stockholm University, Faculty of Humanities, Department of English.
2008 (English)In: Selected Papers from the 2006 and 2007 Stockholm Metaphor Festivals / [ed] Nils-Lennart Johannesson and David C. Minugh, Stockholm: Acta Universitatis Stockholmiensis , 2008, 21-27 p.Conference paper, Published paper (Other academic)
Abstract [en]

This paper addresses a central contrast in medieval exegetical writing, namely that between metaphors and metaphor-like expressions of exegetical interpretation. Using examples drawn from the Middle English homily collection "Ormulum" (Bodleian Library, MS Junius 1) as well as from Latin exegetical texts of a type that provided the homilist, Orm, with model expressions, the paper explores syntactic, semantic, and pragmatic differences between the two types of expression.
