Description The conquest of Rome by the Vandals in 455 is a well-known event. But the Vandals were not only enemies of all Roman things, as Victor of Vita claims, but also recipients of Roman culture, and not just in its outward signs. The children of Vandals and Romans attended the same schools and recited the same rhetorical exercises; members of the upper social classes were familiar with Roman history, Graeco-Roman mythology and literature, and perhaps partly with philosophy. The main sources for these findings are the works of the poet Dracontius and the Catholic bishop Fulgentius of Ruspe. The work De nuptiis Philologiae et Mercurii was probably written for the Vandals.
