Description

An exploration of the archetypal images from pagan mythology and from contemporary poetry that are embedded in the descriptions of Christ. Behind the image of the Good Shepherd lurks not just the figure of Pan, the god of pastoral care, but also Polyphemos, the one-eyed monstrous Cyclops. Behind Christ the Great Teacher there is not only Socrates, but also Silenos whose drunkenness intoxicates his teaching about dying.
