Is Luke's Rhetoric Hellenistic, Semitic or Both? The Last Supper as a Test Case

Hägerland, Tobias LU (2013) In Studi del terzo convegno RBS. International Studies on Biblical & Semitic Rhetoric p.365-380
Abstract (Swedish)
Abstract in Italian

Sono qui messi a confronto due modelli per l’analisi dei Vangeli da un punto di vista retorico: l’utilizzo delle categorie retoriche dei Progymnasmata ellenistici e «la retorica biblica e semitica». Si sostiene che l’utilizzo di un modello non escluda l’utilizzo dell’altro, ma che anzi si completino a vicenda. Un’analisi dell’ultima cena in Lc 22,11-38 serve a illustrare l’uso dei due modelli complementari. Nell’introduzione sono presentati gli argomenti a favore dell’ipotesi che nel Vangelo secondo Luca si faccia uso di entrambi i modelli retorici. L’articolo poi propone due analisi diverse della pericope: l’analisi fatta dall’autore stesso che presenta la pericope come l’espansione di una chreia; e in... (More)

Meynet che utilizza la retorica biblica e semitica. Le differenze e le corrispondenze tra le due analisi sono identificate e discusse, e, infine, vengono presentate alcune indicazioni sul modo in cui i due tipi di retorica si possono completare.

Abstract
Two approaches to the rhetorical analysis of Gospel texts are being compared in this essay: on the one hand, the use of the rhetorical categories of the Hellenistic Progymnasmata, and on the other, «Biblical and semitic rhetoric». It is argued that these two

approaches are not mutually exclusive, but complementary. The last supper in Luke 22,14-38 functions as a test case. An introduction offers some reasons in favour of the assumption that the Gospel of Luke draws on both types of rhetoric. Then, two recent rhetorical analyses of the account are presented: firstly, the essay author’s own analysis of the account as a chreia elaboration, and secondly, R. Meynet’s analysis of it from the perspective of biblical and semitic rhetoric.... (More)
