This book looks at the contribution of the grammarian to the creation of a distinctively Christian classical culture and to promoting theological ideas and milleux. The grammarian taught latin language and literature, and were particularly concerned with the correct usage of latin. In their choice of exempla they were inevitably making cultural statements, and this study with intriguing chapter headings such as "fear boredom and amusement: emotion and grammar" and "grammar and utopia", shows how distinct bodies of Christian and Pagan texts evolved for teaching purposes.
