    Title: The Composition of Ortensio Lando's Dialogue Cicero Relegatus et Cicero Revocatus
    Review/Collection: "Italian Studies", 30
    Year edition: 1975
    Pages: 30-41
    Description:   Abstract : The first published work of Ortensio Lando is the dialogue CICERO RELEGATUS ET CICERO REVOCATUS, which appeared in 1534 in separate editions in three different European cities, Lyons, Leipzig and Venice, an indication of the widespread interest in discussions on Ciceronianism, following the publication in 1528 of Erasmus’s provocative Ciceronianus. One should, strictly speaking, refer to the work in the plural, for though it is untrue that it was ever published in separate parts, as has sometimes been believed, it consists of two largely independent, though complementary, dialogues, the first containing criticism of Cicero, and concluding with his banishment, the second recounting his praises and his triumphant return. The form of Lando’s Cicero dialogue thus provides the earliest evidence of a characteristic feature of its author’s mentality, his apparent tendency to support both sides of any question, which achieves its most satisfactory literary expression in his Paradossi (1543), and which continues to make life difficult for those interested in unravelling his intellectual position. In the present contribution, however, I do not intend to try my skill as an interpreter of the Cicero dialogue, which has recently received a certain amount of attention from scholars, but to set myself the more modest task of investigating some of the circumstances surrounding the work’s composition. As is the case with all but the major authors of the Cinquecento, the factual information available in reference sources on Lando and his works, where it is not inaccurate, is often incomplete, and first-hand research is essential if interpretation of his works is to be freed from dependence on misleading or inaccurate surmises passing as factual data.

    Title: Classical Rhetoric in America
    Review/Collection: nternational Journal of the Classical Tradition, 18-3
    Year edition: 2011
    Pages: 415-436
    Description: Abstract -  (Above all Greek, above all Roman Fame’: Classical Rhetoric in America during the Colonial and Early National Periods) : The broad and profound influence of classical rhetoric in early America can be observed in both the academic study of that ancient discipline, and in the practical approaches to persuasion adopted by orators and writers in the colonial period, and during the early republic. Classical theoretical treatises on rhetoric enjoyed wide authority both in college curricula and in popular treatments of the art. Classical orators were imitated as models of republican virtue and oratorical style. Indeed, virtually every dimension of the political life of early America bears the imprint of a classical conception of public discourse. This essay marks the various specific aspects of the reception and influence of the classical rhetorical tradition in the learning, speaking and writing of Americans in the eighteenth and early nineteenth centuries.

    Title: The Rhetoric(s) of St. Augustine's Confessions
    Review/Collection: Augustinian Studies, 39-2
    Year edition: 2008
    Pages: 265-291
    Description: Abstract - In this essay, I offer a sympathetic reading of the rhetoric(s) of Augustine's Confessions. First, as a historian of rhetoric I am interested in what Augustine's narrative can tell us about the theory and practice of rhetoric in the late classical period and the early Christian era. From this perspective, I am interested in exploring what Augustine discloses about the rhetoric he learned in the provincial Roman schools, and taught at Carthage, Rome, and Milan. Second, I am interested in Augustine's own work on rhetoric, especially his De Doctrina Christiana, most of which he composed during the period right before he began the Confessions. In particular, I am interested in how the rhetorical ethics that emerges from Augustine's formal treatment of Biblical exegesis and preaching, and which distinguishes Augustine's rhetoric from that of his classical predecessors, can illuminate our interpretation of the Confessions. Finally, I am interested in exploring how the Confessions itself works as a rhetorical text— that is, as a discourse addressed to an audience for the purpose of influence. In particular, I am interested in exploring the specific pastoral functions served by Augustine's narrative.

    Pages: 217-237
    Description: A partire dalle citazioni ciceroniane nell'opera senecana, si indaga il contraddittorio atteggiamento di Seneca nei confronti di Cicerone, che va dalla distanza umana testimoniata dalle Consolationes, alla diversa concezione in materia stilistica, cui rimandano vari passi delle Epistulae ad Lucilium, alla lontananza nel concepire il rapporto tra filosofia e oratoria. Il rapporto Cicerone-Seneca viene poi letto alla luce dei giudizi e delle posizioni di Quintiliano, Gellio, Petrarca. (Année philogique)

    Title: Roman Elections in the Age of Cicero
    Editor: Routledge
    Year edition: 2011
    Pages: 185
    Description: [Publisher Abstract] Great debate exists amongst classical historians on the nature of Roman republican government. Some contend that the Roman Republic was governed by a small group of aristocratic families that entrenched their rule by means of long-standing alliances and an intricate network of loyal clients from the lower echelons of society. Others contest the definition of the republican government as oligarchic, maintaining that the Roman elite did not operate in a political vacuum and that Polybius' judgment, which concedes a democratic element in the Roman constitution as embodied in the powers of the popular assemblies, cannot be simply swept aside. This debate has found its way into various scholarly works, but, until now, no single volume has been dedicated specifically to elections and electioneering, a sphere where the people—according to these interpretations—played a central if not a crucial role. Roman Elections in the Age of Cicero provides new and intriguing insights into the nature of Roman republican government and the people's actual powers, but also addresses questions relevant to elections in our own societies today.
