Oxford University Press

Few private speeches contain significant references to religious concepts that go beyond the procedural acts of the previous chapter. This chapter presents the most obvious examples from Demosthenes 47, 54, 57, and Isaeus 6. These instances partly start from ritual acts mentioned in Chapter 8, but are all close to motifs that have been found in the public speeches.

Keywords:   private speeches, public speeches, Demosthenes, Isaeus, ritual acts
