PRUDENTIUS CLEMENS
Form: Aurelius.
The most important among the Christian Latin poets, born 348 A.D., of a respectable family in Spain. After a rhetorical and legal education, he first practised as an advocate, discharged the duties of a civil and criminal judge in Spain, held a high military appointment at court, and in later years retired to a monastery, where he devoted himself to writing sacred poems, and died about 410 A.D. He published a collection of his sacred poems in 405 A.D. They are composed with rhetorical skill, in epic and lyric metres (in the latter of which Horace in his model); and they include subjects of the most varied kind: Hymns for daily prayer (Cathemerinon liber); a martyrology (Peri Stephanon); a conflict between the virtues and the vices for the soul of man, etc.
