Recently it has been argued that the letter in which Jerome urges Sabinian to repentance contains an echo of Catullus. The attempt is made in the present article to rebut this view: the wording in question would in fact appear to have been appropriated instead from St. Cyprian. Evidence is also adduced to show that the same epistle is characterized by a number of similarly unidentified reminiscences of the pagan classics: if Catullus must be discounted, this letter does evince a debt to Cicero, Florus, Sallust and Virgil.
