Show Summary Details


This chapter examines three other anti-pagan poems in hexameter verse that date from the same time and place, give or take a decade: the Carmen ad quendam senatorem (CAS) mistakenly ascribed to Cyprian; the Carmen ad Antonium (CAA) preserved among the poems of Paulinus of Nola, though certainly not by him; and, most elaborate of all, the two books of Prudentius's Contra Symmachum (CS).

Keywords: Carmen ad quendam senatorem; Carmen ad Antonium; Contra Symmachum; anti-pagan poems
