Viva vox und weiches Wachs: Plinius bei Hieronymus (epist. 53, 1–3 an Paulinus)
In the introductory part of his first letter to Paulinus (epist. 53), Jerome recurs to a famous literary model: Plinius the Younger. While using his letters 2, 3 and 7, 9 as eminent examples of pagan epistolography and, at the same time, transforming them for Christian purposes, Jerome combines the reception of Plinius with intertextual allusions to other classical authors, i.e.Quintilian and Seneca, and, not the least, to the biblical text, namely Paul's “Letter to Galatians" and the “Epistle to the Hebrews".
