Chapter Summary

This index presents a list of terms and concepts with relevant to the discussion on the rhetorical speeches in Greek and Roman Antiquity. The history of rhetoric is a major field of research in the sciences of Antiquity. In an extensive series of studies scholars have investigated the origins and evolution of rhetoric in relation to changing historical, social, political and intellectual conditions. Burgess and Klek quite rightly took the triad of deliberative, judicial and epideictic genres formulated by Aristotle in Rhetoric as the predominant classificatory model for discourses in ancient theory, but they actually enlarged the scope of the two genres they considered deliberative and epideictic well beyond the limits envisaged by the ancients.

Keywords: Aristotle; Greek Antiquity; rhetorical speeches; Roman Antiquity
