Onorato on ‘The Poet and the Light’

In a new article, ‘The Poet and the Light’, Marco Onorato develops two different applications of Prudentius’ ekphrasis of light and colour in the Temple of Wisdom in Psychomachia 823-887 in Sidonius’ poems, a profane and a religious one, Carm. 11 (the temple of Venus, vv. 17-33) and Carm. 27 in Ep. 2.10.4 (the church of Lyon, vv. 8-15) respectively.

Onorato on Carm. 22 and Ovid

Marco Onorato has contributed to a new volume of Présences ovidiennes with ‘La parola e il silenzio. Echi dell’ultimo Ovidio in un dittico paratestuale sidoniano’. See bibliography page 2020 and Academia

‘Tracce di un fecondo confronto con Ovidio e, in particolare, con la sua produzione dell’esilio affiorano nella praefatio epistolare del c. 22 di Sidonio, delineando l’esistenza di un paratesto ‘espanso’ che deborda nei primi versi del componimento e che sviluppa una riflessione organica sullo statuto del canto e sul rapporto con l’orizzonte d’attesa del pubblico. Emergono inoltre nuovi indizi della fortuna dell’Ibis nella Gallia tardoantica.’

Onorato detects Prudentius and Paulinus

In a new article, Marco Onorato has identified Prudentius and Paulinus of Nola in Carm. 1. See Bibliography, tab 2019.

Abstract. In the preface to Sidonius’ panegyric of Anthemius the expression variae … hostia linguae (c. 1.29) discloses a contamination of lexical and thematic features of Prud. perist. 10 and Paul. Nol. c. 18. Starting from these allusive marks it is possible to reconstruct further elements of the poem’s Christian subtext, which brings out the ambiguity of Sidonius’ attitude towards the emperor.
