    DescriptionThe "Carmina XII sapientum" is a corpus of inscriptions from late classical antiquity which was widely received in the Middle Ages and the Renaissance. It consists of 12 cycles of 12 poems, each cycle with a different theme. The titles of the manuscripts name twelve scholars as the authors. This study provides a detailed critical commentary on the individual elements of the corpus, dealing with all its textual, linguistic, stylistic and content-related aspects. The commentary on each cycle is preceded by a historical treatment of the motifs. In the process, the author reaches a new interpretation of this collection of epigrams. She presents it as a jocular work in the ancient literary tradition of the symposium; it was produced at the turn of the 4th century AD by a rhetorically skilled author already versed in Christian discourses, probably by the rhetor and later Christian apologist Lactantius.
