Prudentius and the Landscapes of Late Antiquity

Cillian O'Hogan

  • Provides a comprehensive study of the entire body of work of the most important Christian poet before Dante, Prudentius
  • Shows how Prudentius fitted into the context of early Christian ideas about the Book of Nature
  • Argues that Prudentius' descriptions of journeys were modelled on the epic journeys of earlier literature, particularly the journey of Aeneas in Vergil's Aeneid
