Mary and the Old Testament's Wisdom in Matthias Scheeben's "Mariology" August 18, 2018 17:09

Scheeben relates Mary to the Old Testament by a reflection on the scriptural figure of Lady Wisdom. The theological tradition has treated her as a literary personification of multiple actually-existent realities, of which Scheeben attends especially to three: a divine Person; a cosmological reality; and Mary. He does not conflate these distinct realities but finds in each deep significance, worthy of consideration according to their representation by scriptural Wisdom.
