Jean Desmarets’s famous epic poem ‘Clovis’ has long been considered one of the most important works of poetry pertaining to the triumph of Christianity over paganism. Clovis, the 5th-century Frankish king, was born into paganism but his conversion heavily influenced his expanded rule over most of Gaul. Scholars agree that ‘Clovis’ is the first modern Christian epic and contends with many of the ancient epics.

 

This 1666 edition is valuable, not just for its famous content, but for the inclusion of 24 exquisite engravings by Bosse and Chauveau.
