COMPILATION OF LETTERS
IN CICERO’S CORRESPONDENCE

Hans-Josef Klauck

1 This theme takes up a line of investigation into ancient letters and their relation to New Testament epistolary literature, for which our esteemed colleague, Abraham J.

For Cicero, see also Hans-Josef Klauck, Die aniike Briejliteralur und das Mue Testament: Ein Lehr- und Arbeilsbuch (Uni-Taschenbücher 2022; Paderborn: Ferdinand Schöningh, 1998) 126–33, with further literature (in the following notes I take the opportunity to add some new titles on ancient epistolography which have not yet been given in my book). Special thanks are due to Dr. Brian McNeil, Munich, for correcting my English, and tojohn T. Fitzgerald and L. Michael White for editing the manuscript.
