In this article we intend to establish a relationship between myth and allegory according to the treatment of the Hellenistic-Christian literary tradition, to consider the application of allegory with philosophical function and its reception by St. Augustine. We exemplify the process with the Augustinian interpretation of the story of Pyramus and Thisbe according to De Ordine. We conclude in the argumentative scope of the allegory to found a philosophical prescriptive.
En el presente artículo pretendemos establecer una relación entre mito y alegoría según el tratamiento de la tradición literaria helenístico-cristiana, para considerar la aplicación de la alegoría con función filosófica y su recepción por san Agustín. Ejemplificamos el proceso con la interpretación agustiniana de la narración de Píramo y Tisbe según De Ordine. Concluimos en el alcance argumentativo de la alegoría para fundar una preceptiva filosófica.
