(Greek: anagogikos, that which leads up; e.g., the teachings of the Bible lead to eternal life)
That division of the typical sense which includes blessings to be hoped for, and which refers particularly to the future life. The rest which the Israelites found in Chanaan is anagogically typical of eternal rest in heaven (Psalms 94; Hebrews 4). Jerusalem in its anagogical sense is typical of the Church triumphant.
