The History of the Theological Background of the Christ-Augustus Typology: The Traces of the Augustus-Theology in the Karthauzi Névtelen´s Christmas Eve Sermon

  • In the Christmas Eve sermon of the Érdy Codex its writer comes to the conclusion that Augustus, Emperor of Rome is a prefiguration of Jesus Christ. This interpretation shows - according to the second grade of the medieval biblical hermeneutics – the locus allegoricus typological meaning. The typological explanation is based on the method of correspondence. One pole is the type, the other pole is the anti-type: the type foretells the anti-type, and the anti-type fulfills, moreover, exceeds the type. This knowledge must be taken into account when interpreting this sermon. The writer confirms this idea with arguments and historical facts (monarchy, peace, census). So Augustus is one of those who prepared Christ´s saviour work. This paper deals with the history of the theological background of this theme and Karthauzi Névtelen´s sources.
