Abstract

The study focuses on a hidden classical allusion that has remained undetected in the biography of St. Hilarion. The young monk, tempted by carnal desire, tries to escape sin by fasting, praying and basket-weaving. Describing this last method, Jerome refers not only to the well-know monastic activity and the sentence of St. Paul - qui non operatur non manducet - but depicts basket-work as a remedy for love, an allusion to the erotic context of Virgil's Third Eclogue.
