At the highest of the complex temporal hierarchy that sustains the entire State of the Church, the Pope was for hundreds of years the possessor of ecclesiastical spiritual power and the influential monarch of that empire. Once judged the most fearful for his enemies, he is regarded as the foremost indispensable for his allies.
Synthesizing in his hands political and spiritual influences, this figure, from the historical point of view, is in a way quite a straightforward sovereign. He’s the pinnacle of a spiritual empire that has no territorial or geographical limits, whose authority can not be questioned since that’s granted directly by God.
While the traditional sovereigns had to require refuge in thaumaturgy and patronage to seal the authoritarian character of their figures, the white monarch, on the other hand, has always had the entire Christian ideological apparatus on his side, matured over the centuries, and developed through his predecessors, becoming the ethical-moral supervisor of all universal Catholic society, the justice of the customs and behavior of men.
A HISTORICAL SYMBOL BEFORE THE HISTORICAL
It would be enough to delve into the etymology of the term itself to understand the latent symbols that justify its appearance during sleep and which are the substrates of aiming to compose the meaning of that figure vertically.
The term derives directly from the traditional Greek word ????? (transliteration pàpas), a word with a powerful onomatopoeic meaning that affectionately indicates the figure of the daddy. He’s, in effect, the spiritual father of the church and the Catholics within the world.
Its symbolic base is principally composed of the masculine psychic archetype of the Senex, the wise older man, the authoritarian father, the genealogical leader, and progenitor, of the top generally, and of the teacher. To the present must be added the myriad of meanings that being a father brings, but of a non-secular association, values ??directly linked to the concept of guidance, the moral compass, spirituality, and knowledge.
In his somatic knowledge and spirituality, psyche and human responsibility before God, religious faith converges. It’s also the tangible proof of Verbum that he becomes flesh, that he becomes a pulsating matter and participates within the process of life.
But he’s also Pontifex Maximus. Therefore, the pontiff is materially the one who creates bridges, that is, paths of passage that connect different regions and places, an area of the annulment of oppositions. He is the one who sustains dichotomies, the one who assimilates without annulling the intrinsic differences to his community. He is also the spokesman for the complete ethical and wisdom codes of a philosophical-religious matrix.
It’s unnecessary to be a believer or have faith in Christian bodies since this figure is now an integral part of the human cultural heritage, and its symbolism has universal value.
The Pope appears within the dream world of a dreamer raising severe problems of a spiritual nature, facing an ethical change, or closing activities that, unconsciously, he believes are beyond the control of his morality.
Since Senex is an archetype also linked to the concept of laws and rules to be respected, the Pope could appear during a dream to someone who feels in his heart that he’s betraying his intimate morals, or to someone who feels confused, spiritually lost, who lacks values ??and excellent reference guides, which during this case would be compensated through such a figure.
A father, then, is par excellence the hubby, the one who not only supports him, but is additionally able to protect him pragmatically from external incursions, and is therefore often a signal of dreamers who, lacking guidance, also lack strong reference figures which will guarantee safety, comfort, and conservation.
The spiritual component, then, must be interpreted because he must eradicate from the futility of fabric things within the world, the notice of the transience of things, of their decay and disappearance, of their temporal limitation, a proof of a private who, as a family, focuses on the intangible aspects of life, constantly seeking goals that have a nonstop component which can satisfy their personal metaphysical needs.
The liturgical clothing painted in black could confer with some repudiated aspects of the psychic substrate itself. The color black is the antithetical opposite of white; candor, trust, benevolence is replaced by forgetfulness, oblivion, elimination, and sin. Staining the white and pure garment of Christian candor is the equivalent of elements considered by the dreamer’s psyche as sins and must be repudiated and repressed. It could indicate the emergence of renegade aspects of a robust and rigidly authoritarian self, which has created a system of rules within which the religious component has the whip hand over the others.
DREAM OF KILLING THE POPE
Once again, our ego gives play to our latent feelings, to our repressed rage against a perhaps rigorous education administered under the sign of Christianity. We’ve repeatedly recalled how the murder and death of something indicate a phase of transition, change, ethical and material renewal. In this case, the symbol doesn’t escape this interpretation. The dreamer decides to reject all the moral buildings of his civil education. He feels oppressed by the principles and feels the necessity to flee and renounce them, changing his belief system.
