Chapter Summary

This chapter provides an analysis of the elocutio and dispositio of 1 Cor. 11, 216, allowing a coherent interpretation, by putting together both diachronic and synchronic rhetorical approaches and using the contemporary methodology of Roland Meynet. There are many reasons why the passage of Pauls First Letter to the Corinthians 11, 216, elicits scholarly interest and controversy. There have always been some problems in determining the flow of argument. Many scholars have criticized Pauls argument for being convoluted and confused. Furthermore, it is very difficult to accept that Pauls intention was to suggest that women is to be subordinated to men because of their lower ontological status.

Keywords: dispositio; elocutio; linguistic rhetorical criticism; Pauline
