Claudio Moreschini

Claudio Moreschini (1938?) is an Italian expert in Classical Philology, Platonism and Patristics, often approaching early Christian authors from a literary perspective. After initial studies at the University of Pisa and at the Scuola Normale Superiore in the same city, Moreschini studied at Oxford, notably with E.R.Dodds and Eduard Fraenkel to whom he acknowledges a special debt.

From 1966 onwards he occupied a succession of posts in the University of Pisa, particularly as Professore ordinario di Letturatura Latina (1981-2009), Professore ordinario di Letturatura Cristiana Anticha (1971-19987, 2003-2009) and as Head of Department. He has worked with the Istituto di Scienze Religiose at Trent and latterly at the Istituto Patristico Augustinianum in Rome.

Publications include an Italian translation of Thucydides, 2 dialogues of Plato for the Budé series, 2 Ciceronian dialogues, Apuleius, Consolatio Philosophiae in the Leipzig Teubner series, Tertullian Cyprian, Jerome in Corpus Christianorum of Turnhout. Moreschini is a major contributor to Sources Chrétiennes. He has also published items concerning Jamblichus and Maximus the Confessor.

Claudio Moreschini is interested in the reception of antiquity, not least Plato, at the Renaissance and in nineteenth century Italy (Leopardi).

In 2009 he was recipient of the Marcello Gigante Prize.
