    Overview

    Aims and Scope

    This is the first modern German translation of the political poems published by Claudian in 395–405, a unique historical source for the years after the Theodosian division of the Roman Empire. Claudian was the court poet of the Western Roman emperor Honorius and his general Stilicho. His poems also capture the spirit in which Virgil’s, Ovid’s, and Statius’s gods and heroes were revived in the panegyric of state celebrations.
