This research work consists of 3 main parts, a synthetic introduction, the drawing up and the translation of the text of the second book of corippus' johannis, and an analytic commentary of this book, verse by verse. The introduction first evaluates our knowledge of corippus' life and work, then considers the time when the poem was written. Then, an outline of the contents of this epic is given, which leads to present the historical circumstances under which it was written, and to ponder on corippus' literary project, which turns out to be closer to panegyric than to epic. After studying the prosperity and the written tradition of the poem, book ii will be more specifically dealt with: its place in the work and its composition, its literary typology, its ideology, its geographical, ethnographic and historicdal interest, its linguistic and literary interest will be examined. Then comes the text of the second book, with a critical apparatus and the translation, then a line for line commentary, philological as well as literary, ideological and historical. An attempt has been made to make it as exhaustive as possible. - between the introduction and the drawn-up text, translated and commented, there is an exhaustive bibliography of the ichannis, and an indicatory one for the rest.
