The purpose of this article is to analyse the biblical and doctrinal exegesis involving the subject of Mariology and Saint Vincent Ferrer, a late medieval Valencian Dominican friar. In his sermons, the preacher exalts the figure of the Virgin by means of a series of analogies, allegories, biblical typologies and metaphors, and he characterises her significance as a Middle Age iconic and ubiquitous hagiographic model, based on the centuries-old divinity and literary patristic-scholastic tradition, in relation to analogical thinking and a symbolic and specular perspective.
