For medieval Christians, the figural, typological meaning is of the greatest importance in trying to make sense of historical events. There are not only figural meanings in the events of the past – i.e., those recounted in the Old Testament – that are fulfilled in the New Testament, but also in the events taking place after the life of Christ. Within this framework, the topic of God’s Face finds its meaning: the Holy Face is not only a relic, but also – or even primarily – a real figura.

Abstract

For medieval Christians, the figural, typological meaning is of the greatest importance in trying to make sense of historical events. There are not only figural meanings in the events of the past – i.e., those recounted in the Old Testament – that are fulfilled in the New Testament, but also in the events taking place after the life of Christ. Within this framework, the topic of God’s Face finds its meaning: the Holy Face is not only a relic, but also – or even primarily – a real figura.
