The Aeneid Religion Quotes

How we cite our quotes:

Quote #1

When Dawn came up from Ocean in the east, Though Pallas' death had left Aeneas shaken, And duty pressed him to give time For burial of the dead, he first In early light discharged his ritual vows As victor to the gods. (11.1-6)


This quotation, like the fourth quotation for this theme, shows the close connection between religion and the idea of Duty. This quotation could have just as easily gone under that theme.
