Excerpt from Principles of Sacred Eloquence

"Strip me of everything else in the world, but leave me eloquence." - St. Gregory Nazianzen.

Oratory, as an Art, was first mooted by Empedocles (B. C. 450). but the oldest existing treatise on the subject is Aristotle's "Rhetoric." Cicero, at a later date, dealt more comprehensively with it in his Essays, as in "The Invention of the Topics," "The Orator, or Brutus," "The Divisions of Oratory," "Of Famous Orators," and "The Orator." In this last work the author, in three books, enters minutely into all the details of the art. "The Institutions" of Quintilian, in twelve books, is the fullest work of the kind in the classical age. Modern writers have added little to the art; their task has been the application of given principles. These pages, in dealing with the second part, or Practical Oratory, arc mainly an epitome of Cicero and Quintilian, supplemented by details according to modem usage.

What is Oratory? - It may be defined as the "Art of swaying minds by conviction of the truth through speech." It is something beyond mere knowledge, yet less than a science, since science is the result of demonstration from strictly first principles. Oratory also uses demonstration, but of a secondary order.
