Aeneid Book III: Christianity and Classical Culture, Episode 21

In this third episode on the Aeneid (Episodes 1 and 2 available here and here) Dr. Fleming discusses similarities between the Odyssey and Aeneid and why Aeneas must press forward, through geographic and intellectual wanderings, even though he finds some of his fellow Trojans building “Parva Troia” and finds a beautiful queen in Dido who tempts him to end his journey. Book III is an essential background for understanding the work.
