Entre o enigma e o inesperado: uma aproximação à linguagem do Cântico dos Cânticos

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review



This article is situated in the midst of the debate on the diversity of Biblical languages. The literary field chosen is the unusual and unexpected language of the Song of Songs, in which the human word of a man to a woman and the human word of a woman to a man are taken as a key to Revelation and to the understanding of the Scriptures. Faced with the question of how a text that is articulated as a loving language between a man and a woman lends itself to the articulation of a dialogue between God and a human being, our concern is not to find an answer but to try to catch a glimpse of the possibilities of intelligibility that this question implies. Our method will be to approach the language of the Song of Songs recognising it as: a door that clarifies the invisible; a language that mirrors what we are; a language that is the echo of a ‘love’ that precedes and redeems all human loves.
