Excursus: Pseudo-Sibylline Oracles

Original Date
May 17, 2009

The Sibylline Oracles (called also the “pseudo-Sibylline Oracles”) are a collection of oracular utterances written in Greek hexameters  ascribed to the Sibyls, prophetesses who uttered divine revelations in a frenzied state. Twelve books of Sibylline Oracles survive. These are not considered to be the famous Sibylline Books of Roman history, which have been lost, but a collection of utterances that were composed in various places at various dates from the middle of the second century BC to the fifth century CE.
