Resumen

AMES, Cecilia  y  DE SANTIS, Guillermo. Connections among geographical and historical descriptions in Aeneid 8. Circe clás. mod. [online]. 2009, n.13, pp. 29-50. ISSN 1851-1724.

Aeneid´s Book 8 offers a large version of Roman History from the beginnings of Janus and Saturnus to Accius´ battle. Historic account is developed in two episodes: Evander and Aeneas´ tour through Palanteum and the description of Vulcanus´ shield. Both episodes can be taken as ekphrasis and the hypothesis of this paper considers that both must be read in a complementary way in order to assume that Virgilian proposal about history, unlike Livius´, consists of a series of foundations written on the memory of Roman natural and urban geography.

Palabras clave : Aeneid; Aeneas' shield; Ekphrasis; Urban geography; Roman History.
