In antiquity, the male connotation of the supernatural bird was dominant. In Spenser’s Hymns, the Phoenix is the essence of Love-beauty, just as the Dove is the essence of Love-truth. Both are associated with chastity and exclude lust. That kind of love is platonic love and courtly love. In psychoanalytic terms we would speak of idealisation and sublimation.
