The internal logic of an elementary topos E makes it easy to “do mathematics” relative to E, with an automatic way to interpret types as objects of E. But it is unable to deal with large objects such as proper classes, indexed categories, or formulas with unbounded quantifiers. We can solve this problem by embedding E in its category of stacks of groupoids, whose internal logic is Martin-Lof dependent type theory with “1-truncated homotopy”. This allows us to automatically translate standard theorems of category theory into the analogous facts about indexed categories, and to formulate topos-theoretic analogues of unbounded axiom schemas such as separation and replacement.
