"The great 4c. commentary on Virgil tells us much about the Latin language, Roman customs and institutions, and Roman religion. Servius's work had immense importance in Medieval and Renaissance culture. It was, e.g., printed in scores of Renaissance editions of Virgil's poems. This essay, by the distinguished classicist, the late Peter K. Marshall, provides a wonderful introduction to Servius's surprisingly wide interests, the passion which informs his writing, and the authority which his commentary maintained for centuries."
