Archetypal renewal in the Catholic Church
The founder of analytical psychology C G Jung developed the idea of archetypes. These included concepts such as the Mother figure, the Trickster and the Puer Aeternus (or the Eternal Youth.) Animus and Anima are also often regarded as archetypes. These represent the presence of the masculine in a woman, and the feminine in a man. These archetypes are aspects of humanity which Jung regarded as existing in any age or culture. Jung also recognised that as well as archetypes there were archetypal images. These are images which have become fixed in our consciousness as containing certain values for us. Thus the Catholic Church, which is part of the consciousness of millions, can be represented as an archetypal image.
