A Musical Case for Typological Realism
by: Alastair Roberts
This series of essays was originally published as “A Musical Case for Typological Realism” on the Theopolis Blog (March 24 to April 14, 2016).
"Far from being mere literary art or mere pedagogical technique, typology constitutes and displays the actual unity and interwoven character of God’s time and the Son who is the unifying Theme in whom it all consists. The musical character of typology is operative in the sacraments, which place us together within and pattern our lives according to this music, in our bodies as in our hearts. The discordance and dissonance of our broken and fallen time is healed and we are caught up within the divine song, as the Father sings forth his Son on the breath of his Spirit."
