A man and his Gods: religion in the De reditu suo of Rutilius Claudius Namatianus

Wim Verbaal UGent (2006) WIENER STUDIEN. 119. p.157-171
abstract
First is considered Rutilius's use of classical gods and mythology in order to deduce in what sense they still had some significance for the poet. Then his treatment of the Eastern religions is discussed, being the Osiris-festivity at Faleria, followed by the invective against the Jews. Rutilius's outburst against the Jews has to be connected with his invectives against the monks of Capraria and Gorgon. Finally, all these different elements have to be combined in order to uncover the possible tension between Rutilius's divinization of Roma and the actual religious situation, in which Christianity has got the upperhand.
