“Vocatus atque non vocatus…”

The inscription, well known to Jungian scholars and analysts, “Vocatus atque non vocatus Deus aderit” (a quote from the Oracle at Delphi) is carved on the lintel over the main door of the house: “Summoned or not summoned, God will be present.” The quotation was important to Jung throughout his life, and also appears much later in a carving by an unknown hand at Jung’s tower at Bollingen.
