Abstract

This article studies the representation of Peter in the Paschale carmen of Sedulius, a biblical epic of the fifth century. We know little about Sedulius himself or the circumstances of his poem’s composition, but we can, nonetheless, explore possible intentions for the work. Why, for instance, might the apostle Peter be presented in a more favorable light by Sedulius than by the canonical evangelists? This article explores what such a valuation of Peter could possibly mean in light of what can be determined or surmised about the composition of the Paschale carmen and its Sitz im Leben.
