Product Description

This is the first complete English translation of the poetic works of Sedulius, a Christian Latin poet of late antiquity whose biblical epic and hymns were enormously popular during the Middle Ages and the early modern period. The introduction places the poet and his works into his historical and literary contexts, followed by the Latin text of Sedulius s poetic works with English translation on facing pages. Notes on linguistic and historical matters are designed to help the reader with little or no Latin and only some familiarity with Sedulius s classical and biblical sources. Appendices supply texts and translations of incidental related materials, including Sedulius s dedicatory letters; biographical notices, subscriptions, and laudatory poems associated with Sedulius s works in the manuscript tradition; and representative excerpts from Sedulius s own prose paraphrase of the Paschale Carmen. The volume includes a bibliography and index.
