Summary note
"The first edition with introduction, translation and commentary of the 21 Disticha attributed to Ambrose of Milan. This book represents the first monographic work dedicated to the Disticha attributed to Ambrose of Milan, a cycle of twenty-one hexametrical distichs whose aim is the description and explanation of pictured narratives from the Old and the New Testament. After an Introduction which enlightens all aspects of the epigrammatic cycle (transmission, paternity, debts towards previous Latin poetry, Fortleben, hypothesis of reconstruction), the author provides a revised text, a new Italian translation, and a detailed philological, textual, exegetical and iconographic commentary to the Disticha."-- Provided by publisher.
