dbo:abstract
  • Tiberius Claudius Donatus war ein antiker lateinischer Grammatiker. Er lebte im 4. Jahrhundert n. Chr. und verfasste einen Kommentar zu Vergils Aeneis mit dem Titel Interpretationes. Er ist als Schulkommentar konzipiert und dem Sohn des Autors gewidmet. Wichtige Quellen waren bei der Abfassung die Kommentare des Aelius Donatus und des Servius. Die Interpretationes gerieten während des Mittelalters in Vergessenheit. Nach ihrer Neuentdeckung 1438 waren sie in der Renaissance sehr beliebt, so dass der Text von 1488 bis 1599 in 55 Ausgaben erschien. Die erste kritische Edition legte der Stuttgarter Gymnasialprofessor Heinrich Georgii vor (Teubner, Leipzig 1905–1906). Sie ist durch zahlreiche Neufunde veraltet, aber immer noch nicht ersetzt. (de)

  • Tiberius Claudius Donatus was a Roman Latin grammarian of the late 4th and early 5th century AD of whom a single work is known, the Interpretationes Vergilianae, a commentary on Virgil's Aeneid. His work, rediscovered in 1438, proved popular in the early modern age; 55 editions of this book were printed between 1488 and 1599. In his commentary, Donatus claims that the Aeneid is a work of rhetoric with the intention of praising Aeneas, stating that it is best explained by rhetors, not grammarians; therefore, he sticks to a strict literal analysis of the text. He also criticizes existing criticisms of the Aeneid, saying that they fail to identify Virgil's apparent rhetorical advocacy for Aeneas. Donatus also maintains that Virgil was not a philosopher but rather a teacher, and that the best way to read the Aeneid is with an understanding of its universal scope. Donatus had a son by the name of Tiberius Claudius Maximus Donatianus, to whom he dedicated his Interpretationes. (en)
