Latin, Memory, and Oration

The ancients do us the great courtesy of providing many wonderful examples of orations with
both invention and arrangement already selected and crafted. With these first two canons of
rhetoric already in place, the use of such orations allows students to focus on the remaining
canons of rhetoric: style, memory, and delivery. This presentation will demonstrate the
exercise of such practice and the far reaching benefits afforded to students. Attendees will
hear not only from teacher, Karen Moore, but also her students. Orations will be delivered in
both Latin and English. Sources are both secular and sacred.
