Summary Formats Reviews About the author Annotations


His poetry inspired by Tertullian, St. Ambrose, and other early church Fathers, Prudentius’ hymns are some of the oldest Christian hymns still sung in churches today. “Divinum Mysterium” (“Of the Father’s Love Begotten”) and “O sola magnarum urbium” (“Earth Has Many a Noble City”) number among his currently well-known hymns. These 1905 English translations from the original Latin texts come from Robert Martin Pope, a Wesleyan minister and scholar.
