Complete registryShow full item record
In this paper the author tries to show the connection of the moral rhetoric, as established by Isocrates, with Epistolography in general and with the letters of intercession in particular. As it is well known, the fourth and fifih centuries are the age of great collections of letters and many of them (so, for instance, in Libanins epistolaly corpus) are letters of intercession. The use of artificial oratory in the schools and the clase association of rhetoric with epistolography (some elaborate epistles are difficult to be distinguished from speeches) explain many features of the letters of intercession regarded as a product of a rhetorical school.There are, nevertheless, tic differences between speeches and lettes, some of which are examined in this artick.
