102 Ehlen, Oliver VENANTIUS-INTERPRETATIONEN Rhetorische Und Generische Transgressionen Beim "Neuen Orpheus"
Franz Steiner Verlag 2011 3515098720 / 9783515098724 Softcover Fine 
Altertumswissenschaftliches Kolloquium 22; 479 pages; German text. German description: Am Ende der klassischen literarischen Tradition steht ein heute fast vergessener, aber ausserst produktiver Autor, der lateinische Dichter Venantius Fortunatus aus dem sechsten Jahrhundert nach Christus. Obwohl er den grossten Teil seines Lebens im Merowingerreich in enger Verbindung zum Kloster der heiligen Radegunde in Poitiers verbringt, stellt er sich doch in die Tradition der lateinischen Literatur und versucht in den verschiedenen Gattungen, in denen er sich literarisch betatigt, diese Tradition in formaler und inhaltlicher Hinsicht zu erweitern, um sich so als aneuer Orpheus einen Platz in der Geschichte der Literatur zu sichern. Das Oeuvre des Venantius Fortunatus umfasst neben elf Buchern Carmina, einem Martinsepos in vier Buchern noch zahlreiche Heiligenviten in Prosa. Anhand der Interpretation ausgewahlter Beispiele aus den einzelnen Gattungen, die in seinem Werk greifbar sind, zeigt Oliver Ehlen, dass das typisch antike Prinzip der aAemulatio auch bei einem Dichter des sechsten Jahrhunderts noch virulent ist.

Very faint shelfwear. ; Many of the institutions fundamental to the role of men and women in today's society have their origins in late antiquity. This revisionist study offers a comprehensive look at how Christian women of this time initiated alternative, ascetic ways of living, both with and without men.
