Christian Latin poetry from the fourth to sixth centuries was hugely influential on English and French medieval literature. In this, the first substantial overview of this poetry, Carolinne White sets the works in their literary and historical context, including translations of over thirty poems and excerpts, many never translated into English before.

Industry Reviews

"The translation of the poems (most, of necessity, excerpts) are quite successful... there is clearly a real need for a new anthology such as this... For students of the period, especially those with little or no Latin, this volume will provide a nice, reasonably priced introduction.." -Carl Springer, "Journal of Early Christian Studies "White translates a fresh sample of late antique Christian Latin poetry... an interesting, idiosyncratic and charming reader... Upper-division undergraduates and graduate students." -"Choice
