Abstract

RHETORICAL STRUCTURE IN TERTULLIAN’S AD SCAPULAM by GEOFFREY D. DUNN A generation ago Robert Sider demonstrated that classical rhetoric pro- vided an important tool for Tertullian in crafting his treatises. 1 In this he was supported by the work of other scholars who considered the rhetorical dimension of Tertullian’s work. 2 This position has now been accepted gen- erally among the academic community who cite Sider’s work with approval. 3 In his work Sider discussed all but two of Tertullian’s treatises in terms of their rhetorical structure, style and method of argumentation. Elsewhere, I have discussed at length the rhetorical in uence on adversus Iudaeos , one of the two treatises not dealt with in Sider’s book, arguing that a rhetorical approach to this text helps to address questions of its authenticity, its integrity and its relationship with book three of adversus Marcionem . 4 In this © Koninklijke Brill NV, Leiden, 2002 Vigiliae Christianae 56, 47 - 55 1 Robert Dick Sider, Ancient Rhetoric and the Art of Tertullian (Oxford 1971); idem, “Structure and Design in the De Resurrectione Mortuorum ,” Vigiliae Christianae 23 (1969) 177-196; idem, “On Symmetrical Composition in Tertullian,” Journal of Theological Studies n.s.
