 Encomiastic Origins: The Theology and Rhetoric of a Hidden Oration
Advisor: John Donahue
Honors Department: Interdisciplinary Studies

I believe I have found a lengthy rhetorical work dating from between the 4th-6th centuries in one of the 30,000 entries of the 10th century Byzantine lexicon known as the Suda. If I am correct, scholars have been overlooking a unique piece of rhetoric that offers a new insight into the theology and literature of Late Antiquity.
