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.
