Chapter Summary

Parabolae (Par) VII is set in two separate scenarios each of which contains its own topographical complexity, and each of which proposes an answer to the double question, "Where do you come from, and where do you go?" The overall scenario and spiritual framework of the narrative is the monastic plot. This plot is unfolded around the via of the monk (with a short necessary deviation into the cubiculum) and tells how the monk went to the market and met Christ on his way. The via of the monk takes its point of departure in the monastery from which he sets out and is aimed at the heavenly kingdom that he buys on his way. Anthropologically, the two different yet interactive plots of Par VII each has its specific stress on the aspect of respectively viator and peregrinus.
