Abstract

Rutilius' poem on his return to Gaul around 417 has evoked strikingly little attention for its literary value. Yet a lecture which is focused on its literary aspects might also give some answers to questions raised by the poem and its writer. In this article, Rutilius' attitude toward religion, and especially Jewish and Christian religion, is considered from the perspective of their appearance within the poem and from the internal resonances and allusions that occur. Its objective is to demonstrate that some consistent and coherent lines of thought underlie the apparently loose and disparate sections into which the poem as a whole seems to fall apart.
