Chapter Summary

This index section presents list of subjects or terms that occur in this book The Gospel According to Homer and Virgil. In the fourth century C.E. some Christians paraphrased the stories about Jesus' life in the style of classical epics. Imitating the genre of centos, they stitched together lines taken either from Homer (Greek) or Virgil (Latin). They thus created new texts out of the classical epics, while they still remained fully within the confines of their style and vocabulary.

Keywords: Gospel; Homer; Virgil
