For all peoples with a knowledge of grain agriculture and baking, bread was the most important food. (The original Canary Islanders did not bake bread but worked grain into a sort of Cream of Wheat called gofio. ) In ancient Egypt there were some 40 varieties of bread and other baked goods, and the formulaic expressions for making sacrifices to the dead, refer to bread and beer as the staples of the AFTERLIFE. East of the Mediterranean, bread was not sliced but broken off hence the expression to break bread together. This meal soon came to be understood as a sacred observance, and the 12 loaves of showbread (see Exodus 25:30) in the tabernacle stand for spiritual nourishment. The New Testament recounts the miracle of the loaves and FISHES. Because man does not live from bread alone, the bread of life of the Holy Eucharist, along with the WINE, nourishes his soul. For missionaries to peoples with different staple foods, it was often difficult to make the sacramental symbol comprehensible. (In China, the primary staple is rice in Native American cultures, corn those who first preached to the Inuit or Eskimos spoke of our daily seal blubber. ) The entire process that culminates in bread-reaping, threshing, baking the processed grain from which the sacred bread is prepared---came to symbolize the Christian's laborious life on earth, which was to culminate in the blessed sanctity of HEAVEN. The manna fall ing miraculously from heaven as the Israelites made their way through the wilderness was later considered by Christians as a prefiguration of the Communion bread. It was a popular custom to bless each new loaf of bread with the sign of the Cross. Countless idioms reflect the figurative importance of bread (to take the bread out of someone's mouth, that's my bread and butter). Bread turned the wrong way on the table was considered unlucky: the DEVIL was said to ride on it, and the sight of it to produce quarrels and make ANGELS weep at this reversal of the proper order of things. As a dream symbol bread has only positive associations. Aeppli notes that it is the most common of foods, and yet hallowed: The path that extends from the grain of wheat being placed in its dark furrow, the gentle greening of the field, the sea of grain undulating, through the work of the reaper and thresher, the milling, sifting, kneading, then the passage through the fiery heat of the oven, and finally the sharing of bread at the family table-every station along the way is richly symbolic and, if applied to humanity, refers to the entire course of civilization. In the Neolithic Age, settlement, clearing of forests, and agriculture began to replace hunting and fishing instead of appropriating food, humans began to produce it, creating in the process a new world and a new cultural landscape. With the possibility of accumulating food for future use came increased free time and opportunities for contemplation. The unbounded quality of nomadic life was replaced by delimitations, literally and figuratively, of cultivated and cultural space it was now possible to be aware of the structure of a manageable microcosm. The bread produced therein was indeed the bread of life, and all essential, 'nourishing' values can be handed us in our DREAMS in the form of bread. To receive bread is to take on value, value that must not be squandered.
