Virgil's IVth Eclogue between Kingship and Christianity - Encounters

Virgil's IVth Eclogue between Kingship and Christianity - Encounters

admission free

Maurizio Bettini

Virgil's IVth Eclogue is one of the most intriguing, enigmatic and, at the same time, most successful pieces of Roman literature.  It speaks of a mysterious puer, an extraordinary boy destined to restore peace and prosperity among men.  But who is this puer?  There was a great deal of speculation as to his identity even in ancient times, in the wake of a mysterious prophecy from the Sybil which left open all kinds of possibilities.  Some even considered Octavian Augustus to be a potential candidate.  This, until a later Roman emperor decided that in actual fact the boy could only be the Saviour Himself.
