CSEL 100: Prosper, Liber epigrammatum
This is the first critical edition of Prosper of Aquitaine’s Liber epigrammatum. Prosper composed an influential synthesis of Augustine’s vast œuvre, writing poems inspired by maxims he had excerpted from his works. The epigrams were a guide to Augustine that was both authoritative and pleasant to read. His synthesis became an essential part of the Medieval curriculum, serving as the first interpretative scheme for Augustine’s theology.
