The corpus of Gaudentius of Brescia is constituted by twenty-one Tractatus which gather his homiletic and epistolary works. In these uplifting texts the meaning is enhanced by the bishop’s skilful use of rhetorical devices. It is therefore likely that Gaudentius followed the traditional path of scholastic education, both in the fields of rhetoric and grammar. This hypothesis is supported by the presence of references to classical authors in his writings. Gaudentius’ attention to the form, which was achieved through references to classical texts and stylistic devices, is particularly evident in the Tractatus addressed to educated people. He was indeed aware that these readers would have understood the references to classical authors and appreciated his elegant writing style.
