While describing the descent of Jesus to the netherworld in the virgilian-Christian cento De Ecclesia, the anonymous author establishes a clear intertextual connection with Aeneas’ catabasis in the sixth book of the Aeneid. As a  result, Jesus is seen in a heroic light, related to the iter durum motif. However, when narrating his return (in the form of his resurrection), the centonist moves away from Aeneas and into a new intertextual model: Apollo, whose  more mature traits help define the parameters of an exemplar figure, superior to the heroes of the pagan heritage.
