The Sibylline Oracles
With Introduction, Translation, and Commentary on the First and Second Books
message was then clothed in the very distinctive and mannered pagan idiom that was the hallmark of Sibylline prophecy. The volume contains an edition, translation, and commentary on the undeservedly neglected first and second books of extant oracles. The commentary illustrates some of the ways in
which biblical scriptures were represented and recast in an oracular idiom, and pays particular attention to the oracle's most noteworthy feature, its extraordinarily rich description of the Day of Judgement. - ;her graceful translation of the oracles and her exhaustive discussion of scholarly issues will undoubtedly inspire future students of the texts. [A] monumental work of scholarship. - Aaron Kachuck, Bryn Mawr Classical Review
