abstract

The purpose of this paper is to explore the metaphorical nature of the CAMINO (WAY) image schema in the Bible, focusing on specific passages in the Old and New Testaments that contain the word camino (way) and, to a lesser extent, senda (path). After the description of the notion of image schema applied to WAY in the context of cognitive semantics, the ultimate aim of the study is to discover the metaphorical projections that underlie the biblical WAY-images, as well as the Spanish idioms that are supported by such metaphors. The type of motivation that prevails in metaphors will be surveyed, mainly metaphoric motivation, directly conditioned by the experiences of the human being with his environment, symbol-based motivation and/or intertextual motivation.
