The Myth of Paganism

Nonnus, Dionysus and the World of Late Antiquity

Robert Shorrock

Part of the Classical Literature and Society series, this study focuses on the role of the poet in the emerging Christian world of the fourth to sixth centuries CE and argues against the traditional view of a 'simple binary opposition' between pagans and Christians. Instead, Shorrock presents the Christian world of late antiquity as imbued with the Classical past, and demonstrates the complex ways in which Classical culture was embraced, integrated, rejected or ignored by poets of the period.
