An enlarged edition of The Lion and The Lamb: Figuralism and Fulfillment in the Bible, Art, and Literature Beginning with Northrop Frye's discussion of biblical typology--the understanding of the Old Testament as a source of anticipation of the New Testament--Tibor Fabiny develops his hermeneutical discussion using the insights of reader-response criticism in a wholly original way. His approach to biblical typology is both comprehensive and interdisciplinary, using material from literature and the visual arts in the Christian tradition. He moves from a discussion of the Bible to examples of typology in medieval art and literature and finally to the drama of Shakespeare and T. S. Elliot in Murder in the Cathedral. Tibor Fabiny is Professor of English Literature and the Director of the Center for Hermeneutical Research at Karoli Gaspar University of the Reformed Church in Hungary. He is author of The Veil of God, and editor of Shakespeare and the Emblem; Literary Theory and Biblical Hermeneutics; ""What, Then, Is Time?""; and (with Pierre Buhler) Interpretation of Texts Sacred and Secular.
