EMPRESS EUDOXIAS POETRY AND "THE SIBYLLINE ORACLES"

Aleksandrova Tat'yana L'vovna
St. Tikhons Orthodox University


Submitted: 14.07.2018.
Abstract. The article for the first time analyzes the reception of the monument of the Hebrew-Christian literature, "The Sibylline Oracles", in Empress Eudoxias poetry (the V century A.D.). The author concludes that the traces of "The Sibylline Oracles" influence are visible in the poem "The Life of Cyprian and Justina" at the level of the epic formula borrowing. The metric peculiarities of the poem (prevalence of male caesura) are seemingly conditioned by "The Sibylline Oracles" influence. In other Eudoxias work, Homeric Cento (the first version), the prologue is a paraphrase of the prologue to "The Sibylline Oracles". Eudoxias appeal to this monument is possibly motivated by the role of a "Christian prophetess", which she adopted in her poetry.
Key words and phrases: , " . ", , " ", , , Empress Eudoxia, poem "The Life of Cyprian and Justina", Homeric Cento, "The Sibylline Oracles", late ancient literature, Byzantine literature.
