Abstract

The Epigramma Paulini is a late antique Gallo-Roman poem of uncertain authorship which contains a dialogue structured on the model of the first Vergilian Eclogue. It is an unusual pastoral poem as it blends pastoral with satire. Recent scholarship has focused on the way the author of the Epigramma Paulini adapts the Vergilian model to suit his Christian message. The aim of this paper is to explore more fully the satirical section of the poem and, in particular, the lines focusing on Roman vices which contain a striking attenuation of the topos of misogyny. I seek to show through verbal and thematic similarities that the model for this part of the poem is the Hamartigenia of Prudentius.
