Chapter: Christ as the Middle Way

DOI: 10.1558/equinox.40404


Jung’s archetypal view of Christ sees him as an unavoidable inner figure, whose suffering can represent the way that our own suffering can force us out of old assumptions. His visions also provide a raw encounter with the meaning of the eucharist, and record a process of wrestling with how to combine authenticity with the ‘imitation’ of Christ.
