"Vergil and Ovid at the Tomb of Agnes: Love and Theft in Fourth-Century Rome" Talk by Dennis Trout

4:30 PM  - 6:00 PM
Friday Mar 8, 2013
Harmon Reading Room, DeWitt Wallace Library

Dennis Trout, professor of classics at the University of Missouri, is an award-winning teacher of classics. He is an expert on Latin literature, early Christian Monasticism, and a translator of Paulinus of Nola - an early Monastic figure from Nola, not far from Pompeii. He will join us from 4:45 to 6 p.m., Friday, March 8, in the library's Harmon Room for a public talk on "Vergil and Ovid at the Tomb of Agnes:  Love and Theft in Fourth-Century Rome." This talk draws upon various projects and has the virtue of mixing visual and textual material, topography and intertextuality. Plan to learn more about late Latin poetry, especially as it was inscribed on stone at the fourth-century basilica complex of St. Agnes on Rome's Via Nomentana.
