Chapter Summary

In this chapter, the author explains why and how he wrote his Treatise of Biblical Rhetoric, just published in 2007. The entire Bible, the New Testament as well as the Old, belongs to a linguistic and cultural world very different from the Greco-Roman. The biblical texts obey the laws of composition (dispositio) peculiar to the Semitic area. These laws had become increasingly known over two and one-half centuries, and there was a need to set them forth in a systematic way.
