The author discusses how scriptural imagery was used in the Song of Songs to speak of the Bridegroom and the Bride. He presents a range of interpretations paying attention to the context of the commentators in the early church, such as Hippolytus, Origen, Methodius, Dionysius of Alexander, Apollinarius, Didymus, Jerome, Ambrose, Augustine, and many others.
