Example text

3 Vitale, p. 68. 5 Ecco il passo di Isidoro che starebbe alla base della teoria di Biondo: Latinas autem linguas quattuor esse quidam dixerunt, id est Priscam, Latinam, Romanam, Mixtam. Prisca est, quam vetustissimi Italiae sub Iano et Saturno sunt usi, incondita, ut se habent carmina Saliorum. Latina, quam sub Latino et regibus Tusci et ceteri in Latio sunt locuti, ex qua fuerunt duodecim tabulae scriptae. Romana, quae post reges exactos a populo Romano coepta est, qua Naevius, Plautus, Ennius, Vergilius poetae, et ex oratoribus Gracchus et Cato et Cicero vel ceteri effuderunt.

29 Corsini, pp. 116-121 e Fabbrini, pp. 413-415. 26 44 GIUSEPPE MARCELLINO anche a causa di un suo fraintendimento,30 si dichiara insoddisfatto del modo di procedere dello storico antico: sed cum Hieronymi verba considero, non possum non suspicari, Orosium, ut calamitatem temporibus christianis illatam attenuaret, de ea irruptione multa minora quam oportuisset historicum narravisse. 33 Com’è noto, proprio nell’invasione di Alarico Biondo individua l’inizio della declinatio dell’Impero Romano, pur non negando altre cause remote.

I cittadini romani, una volta ricevuta la notizia, abbandonarono Roma e si rifugiarono sui monti. Il tiranno usurpatore fu ucciso da un soldato romano e il pontefice Leone Magno incontrò Genserico, prima che questi entrasse a Roma, e gli chiese di risparmiare le chiese e di non commettere distruzioni e incendi. Ma Genserico, che era di fede ariana, non ascoltò le parole del pontefice e permise che fossero prese e saccheggiate le chiese di Roma. 37 Blondus Flavius, Decades, p. 26. 38 Paulus Diaconus, Historia Romana, XIV, §§ 16-19.
