At the beginning of the essay, a sinking fact is pointed out, namely, that until the I5th century the Church - within the frame of theological considerations as well as in liturgical worship - had neglected St Joseph as its model and ideal. Therefore, the author suggests that everything being mentioned in the Holy Bible concerning this exceptional husband - St. Joseph - should be reconsidered and deepened through the maturity of the devout theological thought. As a matter of fact, conforming to a model, man is not subjected to any abstract moral principle, but follows definite, realized values which provoke admiration and makes man's will follow them in an attempt to conform to the model - ideal.
