Nonnos of Panopolis in Egypt, who lived in the fifth century of our era, composed the last great epic poem of antiquity. The Dionysiaca, in 48 books, has for its chief theme the expedition of Dionysus against the Indians; but the poet contrives to include all the adventures of the god (as well as much other mythological lore) in a narrative which begins with chaos in heaven and ends with the apotheosis of Ariadne's crown. The wild ecstasy inspired by the god is certainly reflected in the poet's style, which is baroque, extravagant, and unrestrained. It seems that Nonnos was in later years converted to Christianity, for in marked contrast to the Dionysiaca, a poem dealing unreservedly with classical myths completely redolent of a pagan outlook, there is extant and ascribed to him a hexameter paraphrase of St. John's Gospel
A Christian's guide to Greek culture : the Pseudo-Nonnus commentaries on sermons 4, 5, 39 and 43 by Gregory of Nazianzus by Pseudo-Nonnos( Book )

6 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 193 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The sermons of Gregory of Nazianzus (330-390?) reflect a determination, shared by other Greek Fathers of the Church, to preserve useful aspects of Greek learning for the service of the Church in a world based on a pagan system of education. The Commentaries translated here, dating from the sixth century, show the persisting survival of Greek learning. The work takes the form of a series of explanations and glosses of classical references in Gregory's original. Although the author uses an elementary technique of the schools to structure his text, which has little in the way of eloquence or literary art, there is a striking single-mindedness and confidence in his explanations. Some of the information given is inaccurate, and the author is not averse to rewriting texts that he cannot explain. Nonetheless, the work displays a lively interest in Greek learning, and presents a fascinating insight into the attitude of one particular Christian to its continuing validity in an increasingly Christianised world."--Publishers description

Ces trois chants racontent le passage de Dionysos sur le site de Beyrouth, marqué par sa vaine tentative de séduire la nymphe locale. Ils doivent leur célébrité dans l'ensemble de l'épopée mythologique du poète grec à la variété de leurs tons, à l'évocation du paysage de Beyrouth et à la présence de contes sur les origines
