Institutio Oratoria (On the Education of an Orator), volume 3 by Quintilian (35 - 100). Translated by H. E. Butler ( - )


Marcus Fabius Quintilianus was of Spanish origin, being born about 35 A.D. at Calagurris. At Rome he met with great success as a teacher and was the first rhetorician to set up a genuine public school and to receive a salary from the State. He left behind him a treatise "On the causes of the decadence of Roman oratory" (De causis corruptae eloquentiae), some speeches and his magnum opus, the only one to survive to our days. His Institutio Oratoria, despite the fact that much of it is highly technical, has still much that is of interest to‑day, even for those who care little for the history of rhetoric. This third volume covers books 7 to 9. - Summary by Leni ( Leni)
  • Text source (only read from this text!): http://penelope.uchicago.edu/Thayer/E/Roman/Texts/Quintilian/Institutio_Oratoria/home.html
  • Type of proof-listening required (Note: please read the PL FAQ): standard



    IMPORTANT - soloist, please note: in order to limit the amount of languishing projects (and hence the amount of files on our hard-pressed server), we ask that you post an update at least once a month in your project thread, even if you haven't managed to record anything. If we don't hear from you for three months, your project may be opened up to a group project if a Book Coordinator is found. Files you have completed will be used in this project. If you haven't recorded anything yet, your project will be removed from the forum (contact any admin to see if it can be re-instated).
    Please don't download or listen to files belonging to projects in process (unless you are the BC or PL). Our servers are not set up to handle the greater volume of traffic. Please wait until the project has been completed. Thanks!

Hi Leni, 2 repeats:

14:05 - 14:11 "the class of case ... frequent"
16:05-16:08 "thus in the suit concerning the"

And they didn't even copy his speeches accurately! Hmppph.

Best,

Barbara

Hi Leni,



In Section 3, from 9.20 to 9.28.5 there is a pause. The words at the beginning of the pause are repeated correctly from 9.29 on ("for it is a most dangerous practice).

Best,

Barbara
