Chapter Summary

This section presents a list of terms and concepts relevant to the study of the poetry and exegesis in premodern Latin Christianity. Poetry and exegesis, combines two concepts that, strictly speaking, belong to different categories: whereas poetry is a formal category, denoting all sorts of texts in verse, exegesis has to do with content and can theoretically be expressed in any literary form. The Christian biblical commentary takes its origins from sermons of the Church fathers, rather than from the pagan classical commentary.

Keywords: exegesis; poetry; premodern Latin Christianity
