In one unique situation incest was not merely tolerated but actually celebrated:
in the complex relationship between the Virgin Mary and the Trinity, Mary becomes
the mother of her spiritual Father, and the bride both of her Father and of her Son
This spiritual incest was quite commonly discussed in medieval writing. Dante famously
called Mary "figlia del tuo figlio" [daughter of your son], and from the twelfth
century onward the Bride in the Biblical Song of Solomon was often understood to
be the Virgin, and her Bridegroom Christ
The idea of Mary's incest with Jesus was expressed in this fourteenth-century English
Thou wommon boute vere
Thyn oun vader bere.
Gret wonder thys was
That on wommon was moder
To vader and hyre brother—
So never other nas.
You woman without peer,
you bore your own father.
This was astonishing,
that one woman was mother
to her father and her brother—
no other woman ever was.
