This chapter discusses Declaracio oracionis de beata Dorothea (Exposition of the Prayer on the Blessed Dorothea), a monumental treatise on the colors of rhetoric written by Nicolaus Dybinus (also known as Tibinus) around 1369. Declaracio oracionis de beata Dorothea uses a comprehensive and synthetic approach both in terms of language theory and pedagogical application. In addition to rhetoric, the text offers a systematic account of grammar and poetics as well as the subgenres dictaminal rhetoric, rhetorical poetics, and poetic rhythms. It also maps a scholastic outlook onto a traditional listing of figures and tropes.

Keywords:   treatise, rhetoric, Nicolaus Dybinus, language theory, grammar, poetics, poetic rhythms, figures, tropes
