    Il martirio e gli animali: Blandina, Perpetua e Tecla.Roberta Franchi - 2017 - Augustinianum 57 (2):307-340.
    Replete with stories of gods and men interacting with animals, classical literature also affords a broad range of relationships between women and animals. Such a rich series of symbolic animals finds fertile ground in the biblical world, too. Apart from symbolic animals, early Christianity knows a direct contact with wild animals during the persecutions carried out by the Roman Empire. By analyzing the martyrdom of some women in connection with the animals they had to face, we can note that animals (...)

    La simbologia del monte e l'importanza del verbo ὑψόω nella « Parafrasi del Vangelo di San Giovanni » di Nonno di Panopoli.Roberta Franchi - 2011 - Augustinianum 51 (2):473-499.
    In classical and Christian literature mountain symbolism takes many forms deriving from height and center. In so far as mountains are tall, lofty, and rise abruptly to touch heaven, they form part of the symbolism of transcendence and, in so far as they are often numinous places where the gods have revealed their presence, they share in the symbolism of manifestation. According to Gospel’s tradition, in Nonnus’ Paraphrase of St. John’s Gospel, the mountain, visible home of the invisible God, situated (...)

    Il mare in tempesta nel De autexusio di Metodio d'Olimpo e nell'Hexameron di Giorgio di Pisidia.Roberta Franchi - 2009 - Byzantinische Zeitschrift 102 (1):65-82.
    The article offers a fundamental comparison between a passage in the dialogue of Methodius of Olympus calles De libero arbitrio, and one in the Hexaemeron of George of Pisidia. The starting point is represented by a description of the stormy sea, contained in the De libero arbitrio. After a poetical scene full of epical elements , Methodius gives us an original representation of the sea: as the servant can't refuse to obey his master and mumbles by himself, so the sea (...)

    La Vita di Macrina e le Omelie sul Cantico dei Cantici di Gregorio di Nissa.Roberta Franchi - 2016 - Augustinianum 56 (1):57-83.
    This article analyzes the Life of Macrina by comparing it with the mystical experience of the bride in the Commentary on the Song of Songs, both works written by Gregory of Nyssa. In the Life of Macrina, Gregory adopts the same imagery that he uses to portray the bride in the Commentary on the Song of Songs in order to emphasize Macrina’s angelic status and her pure love for God. Although scholars have pointed out the value of virginity in the (...)
