In the Category Theory course it was observed in passing that the category ‘Set’ of sets and functions is naturally a subcategory of ‘Rel’, the category of sets and binary relations. We can produce a parallel statement for any category with sufficient internal structure, and the resulting abstract object is an Allegory. I shall motivate and define allegories and examine how some desirable properties of categories are reflected in their categories of relations.
