Abstract [en]

In this paper, the organization and content of Greco-Roman education are described, the social interaction within ancient high literary culture is depicted, and a selection of the techniques and principles that guided Greek and Latin literary critics are presented. Evidence for early Christian participation in these cultural expressions are discussed, as well as factors behind second-century adoption of literary criticism for interpreting New Testament writings.
