Gli sparsa miracula di Ovidio (Met. 2.193) e Seneca (Epist. 90.43)

Rita Degl’Innocenti Pierini

Abstract


Seneca’s expression sparsa miracula is an allusive homage paid to Ovid, but for the Stoic philosopher, contemplation of the sky is no longer a source of fear, but a way to free himself from wrong convictions and wrong fears.

Keywords


Seneca; Epist. 90; sky contemplation; Stoicism; Ovid.
