Chapter Summary

The humanists developed strategies to bring the argument of obedience completion in diverse variations into play. Sometimes the dedication is more prominent than obedience power and underpinned with various arguments. The authorization strategy makes use of the means of representation of the dialogue scene advantage. In dedication texts that are aimed at secular and ecclesiastical rulers, two arguments are relatively common, which seem to be at first glance unproblematic reflections of historical reality: that the author with his book dedication has a duty to obey the subjects; he gets dedication gifts for benefits. In addition to the constitution of a friendly relationship with the dedicatee, there are other strategies in the beneficiary involvement, which are geared to the educational interests of the dedicatee. The original text of the chapter is in German.

Keywords: authorization strategy; dedicatee; dedication texts; ecclesiastical ruler; secular ruler
