University of California Press

No correspondence from the episcopate of Ennodius of Pavia is preserved. The oldest (Carolingian) manuscripts present his 311 surviving letters mingled with compositions in various other genres, not arranged into separate books by their author. Since the 17th century, scholars have applied various ordering principles to the letters, all leading to different diagnoses of Ennodius’ style and significance but the author’s intentions must be inferred from the numerous addressees, themes (including devotion, gratitude, health, education, family ties, property, and ecclesiastical matters), and language of individual items as he composed them.
