The Aetas Ovidiana (the Ovidian epoch) is a phrase used to denote the popularity of Roman writer Ovid in Medieval literature. The expression was coined by German mediaevalist and palaeographer Ludwig Traube.

As Traube shows, the Ars amatoria was included in the syllabuses of mediaeval schools from the second half of the 11th century, and its influence on 12th and 13th century European literature was of considerable importance. The Amores and Ars amatoria also exerted a great influence on the troubadour culture, and the lyric of courtly love around Orléans.
