Abstract

The tenth book of the Institutio oratoria by Quintilian (1st century A.D.) contains an extensive review of the authors and the works that young speakers in training had to read, learn to judge, imitate and emulate. The book aims to study the theoretical assumptions and the expositive and argumentative procedures that led to compiling this list that was the first ample example of literary history in a comparative perspective between the Greek and Latin worlds. The specific theme fits in the broader context of rhetorical education in Rome during the Imperial Age. The art of speech was the cultural paradigm that profoundly and comprehensively structured the worldview of the ruling groups of that time: through the art of speech they were formed, they perceived and thought reality, and they acted in public life.
