    About “Nonnus of Panopolis

    1. Nonnus of Panopolis says:

      Nonnus of Panopolis was a Greek epic poet He was a native of Panopolis Akhmim in the Egyptian Thebaid, and probably lived at the end of the 4th or early 5th century He is known as the composer of the Dionysiaca, an epic tale of the god Dionysus, and the Metabole, a paraphrase of the Gospel of John.There is almost no evidence for the life of Nonnus It is known that he was a native of Panopolis Akhmim in Upper Egypt, by his naming in manuscripts Scholars have generally dated him from the end of the 4th to the early part of the 5th century AD He must have lived after a poem of Claudian s which he appears to be familiar with after 394 397 AD , but before Agathias us reference to him as a recent author before 530 580 He is known chiefly for his 48 book poem the Dionysiaca, the longest surviving poem in Greek from antiquity it is only 7,000 lines shorter than the Iliad and Odyssey combined A poetic paraphrase of the Gospel of John, the Metabole is attributed to him as well, which is thought by certain verbal echoes to have been composed after the Dionysiaca At least two other works by Nonnus are lost Only four lines of the Bassarica also on the subject of Dionysus have been preserved in a commentary by Stephanus of Byzantium, and according to an epigram in the Palatine Anthology 9.198 , Nonnus was the author of a work titled the Battle of the Giants.Also surviving is his paraphrase of the Gospel of John, which is chiefly interesting as an indication of Nonnus apparent conversion to Christianity in his later years The style is not inferior to that of his epic A team of Italian scholars is currently producing a full commentary of the poem, book by book, of which several parts have already been published They have shown that Nonnus was as learned in Christian theology as in pagan myth That a learned Christian poem and a synthesis of Greek myths could come from the same pen continues to intrigue.
