2. Behold, how good and how pleasant it is for brethren to dwell together in unity! (Psalm 133:1). O. Box 716, NL-9700 AS Groningen, Holland The paper discusses the development of rhetorical analyses of political addresses from classical antiquity to modern political communication. A specific genre, the 'epideictic address', is described in detail. It concerns addresses by representative persons.
