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
