The Roman Self in Late Antiquity


This study aims to restore Prudentius and late Roman poetry in general to a more central place in the formation of a new Christian intellectual tradition in the fourth century AD. Marc Mastrangelo shows how Prudentius was able to fuse ideas from Virgil and Horace with Platonism and biblical exegesis to explore the idea of self in a newly Christian world.
