Gronbeck ( 1986) uses a similar approach to his close textual analysis of President Reagan's Inaugural Address, in which he examines the first, second, and third-person voices with relationship to the organizational segments of the speech and the subject matter: Bruce E. Gronbeck, "Ronald Reagan's Enactment of the Presidency in His 1981 Inaugural Address", in Form, Genre, and the Study of Political Discourse, eds. Herbert W. Simons and Aram A. Aghazarian ( Columbia, South Carolina: South Carolina Press, 1986), 232-236.

Vatican Council II affirmed the previous Vatican Council I's teaching on the primacy of the pope. However, it also viewed the pope as head of a college of bishops who together lead the church.
Bernice Martin, A Sociology of Contemporary Cultural Change ( New York: St. Martin's Press, 1981), 199-200.
Michael Vincent Pearson uses the opening salutation as one of six criteria to classify papal speeches by intended audience: Michael Vincent Pearson , "Audience Adaptation and Argument in John Paul II's American Speeches -- October 1979: A Textual Analysis" (Ph.D. dissertation, Temple University, 1987).
Similar comparisons are made between encyclicals and the New Testament Epistles in Kathleen Jamieson, "A Rhetorical-Critical Analysis of the Conflict over Humanae Vitae" (Ph.D. dissertation, University of Wisconsin, 1972), 50-51.
Pope Paul VI's address to the church members at Yankee Stadium in New York referred to "brothers and sons" in Bin Adler, Pope Paul in the United States ( New York: Hawthorn Books, 1965), 93. This same phrasing is discussed in relation to Paul VI's encyclical writing. See Jamieson, "A Rhetorical-Critical Analysis", 54.
Pearson, "Audience Adaptation", 49.
John Paul II, "Meeting with Black Catholic Leadership", no. 1, in The Pope Speaks to the American Church: John Paul II's Homilies, Speeches, and Letters to Catholics in the United States ( New York: HarperCouins, 1992), 171. Material quoted from John Paul II's speeches is referenced by the numerical sections of the speeches.
