Abstract

The Roman rhetor Marius Victorinus (4th c. CE) is known to have written commentaries on Cicero's 'De inventione' and on Pauline epistles (Ephesians, Galatians and Philippians). He is also known as author of a composite work known in modern scholarship as 'theological treatises'. This latter work is not usually treated as a commentarial work but tends to be viewed as a work of philosophical theology. In challenge of this convention this book chapter argues that this work too should be considered as a commentarial work as it displays striking commentarial features and also seems to belong to an established Latin commentarial genre.
