The common thread of the peripatetic conference--usually held at a facility owned by Pepperdine University--is rhetoric. The 19 papers cover Old Testament, Gospels, general topics, Paul in general, Pauline epistles, and Hebrews. Among the general topics are ethos as a technical means of persuasion in ancient rhetorical theory, and pseudepigraphy and ethos.
