SOME TYPES OF IMAGERY IN THE POETRY OF PAULINUS OF NOLA BY R. P. H. GREEN It was at very nearly the mid-point of his life that Paulinus left the leisured life of Ausonius' literary circle in Bordeaux to tend the tomb of St. Felix at Nola. His literary activity, however, did not cease, but follow- ed the direction of his new enthusiasm; he poured material uncompromis- ingly Christian in content and expression into classical forms, such as the natalicium and the epithalamium,l and created a new conception of Christian poetry with the resources of his thorough education. His bold imagination appears in one of his first undertakings, an apologia to his affectionate master Ausonius for his conversion to a new set of ideals which shed new light on the value of their earlier pursuits. He sent Ausonius a long explanation of his reasons and their implications in language which does justice to his new range of ideas but meets Ausonius on his own level, that of a man whose interest in Christianity was considerable, but not exclusive of other beliefs. Words such as genitor or rex, when used of God, are carefully qualified by a suitable adjective
