Daniel’s figure

In the The Book of Rules , Tyconius suggests that in his witness to Nebuchadnezzar, Daniel represents “the whole body of the church” since “Daniel confounded the king of Babylon as a figure.” Through the Spirit, Daniel “brought the proud king to his knees to confess the one God by virtue of the church’s majesty; by the confession of his own power and his own heavenly wisdom, he overturned the superstitions of Babylon.”

For Tyconius, this means that Nebuchadnezzar was himself a convert: “the king of Babylon who devastated the Lord’s land and killed the people . . . was clean at his death and does have eternal life.”
