This paper aims to provide a comparative analysis of the Latin metrical rewritings of Joh. 2:1–11 written between the 4th and the end of the 5th century. The first part of the study will provide a thorough commentary to Iuvenc. II 127–152 and Sedul. carm. pasch. III 1–11, highlighting the peculiarities of their approach towards the Gospel narrative and interpreting them in light of the different cultural operations realised by the two paraphrasts. In the second part, peculiar attention will be devoted to the tituli by Prudentius, Ps. Claudian, and Rusticus Helpidius, which provide a much abbreviated ‘Umdichtung’ of John’s pericope, but still reveal some interest in major descriptive and exegetic details; in the conclusion, a brief iconographic survey will try to determine the tituli’s most probable iconographic “models”.
