43—The Pastoral Poems of Paulinus of Nola | Way of the Fathers with Mike Aquilina
Paulinus was tagged as the most promising poet of his generation—by the most famous poet of the preceding generation. He was supposed to carry the torch forward for his art.

Along the way, he formed a religious community and then served as bishop. catholicculture
