Studies of Fulgentius Planciade

  • Abstract

Informations and abstract

Keywords: Fabius Fulgentius Planciade; Petronius Arbiter; Philology.

The studies on Fulgentius and the literary works attributed to him, and the analysis of codexes including both texts written by the bishop of Ruspe and the writings of Fulgentius Planciade suggest that the latter was the author of the fragments here translated and commented. The brief texts refer to Petronio Arbitro (who is actually a pseudo-Petronio): they were written in Vandal Africa and refer to verses of Planciade of the 1st century A.D. The demonstration of the differences (style, structure, contents) between the works written by the Father of the Church and those written by Planciade is based on codexes Casinenses 107 and 384.
