Meister Eckhart’s theory of image is closely related to his doctrine of analogy and univocity. It is this linkage, which is highlighted in the article. The article brings se- veral examples of analogical relationality and univocal correlationality which could be found in Eckhart himself and whose importance was recently emphasized in particular by Burkhard Mojsisch. In this context special attention is paid to the correlation between archetype and image which is a paradigm that Eckhart uses repeatedly when describing the basal dynamics of a univocal correlation.
