(p.1) Introduction
Divine Talk

Oxford University Press

This introductory chapter presents the aim of the book and sets out some of the principal questions of the topic. References to religious institutions and beliefs are analysed by contextualization of and differentiation between factors that may influence the choice and employment of such references, making it possible to state not just what types of argument Athenian orators used, but also when and how. Problems lie in the decision as to what to count as religious arguments and how accurately our texts represent what was actually said.

Keywords:   terminology, religious institutions, transmission, delivery, religion
