Abstract

This volume gathers the two books of epigrams composed exclusively by Christian authors on episodes and characters of the religion that, from the fourth century onwards, became the official one of the Empire. Heading the Anthology, book I has 123 components said “pious and divine”, mostly by anonymous poets: dedications of monuments, invocations of Christ and the Virgin, ekphrastic and miscellaneous epigrams. As for book VIII, it offers a garland of 254 epigrams written by Gregorius of Nazianzus, one of the Church Fathers (Cappadocia, 329- 389), of which only 158 are actual epitaphs. The remaining ones are given in the form of prayers to the deceased one by their living relatives, authorial self-reflexions and, closing the book, a large series of epigrams (more than 40) against tomb-desecrators.

Abstract

Book five of the Greek Anthology gathers 310 epigrams united by their erotic subject. Taking the adjective “erotic” literally, it comprises both compositions of sexual theme and intention, with a more or less disguised obscene language, and others where a more or less violent expression of love can be read, similar to the one that would be found in medieval Iberian bards. Apart from a small group of epigrams that resort to Greek mythology, the poems address the most frequent and timeless symptoms and complains of the in loved subject, the often-contradictory feelings inspired by an Eros that Posidippus straightforwardly defines as bittersweet (num. 134).

Abstract

Book five of the Greek Anthology gathers 358 votive epigrams, usually short pieces that, rather intended to be engraved or exercises upon an older model, inform about the reasons for the dedication of everyday-life objects of those who dedicate them. Simplicity and honesty are the words that better resume most of these texts. As for book X, already called Book of Palladas given the large number of poems by him that it includes, it gathers 126 epigrams that are to be read as the result of a very old tradition of gnomic and moralizing poetry. Shining optimism and obscure pessimism are the two poles one can find in these texts, with a clear preference for the last one.
