This paper focuses on strategies of forensic self-representation findable in Cicero's speeches. By considering the real connection between theory and practics in Ciceronian studies, it will be argued that this perception of the advocate's role is due to historical upsets at the end of the Roman Republic, of which Cicero is the most relevant witness. This research has been clearly supported by the lexical analysis of antonymous terms like providentia and temeritas. It will be demonstrated that Cicero's forensic perspective changes not only during the different phases of his political career, but also along with the evolution of the legal system in the Late Republic.

Abstract

This paper focuses on strategies of forensic self-representation findable in Cicero's speeches. By considering the real connection between theory and practics in Ciceronian studies, it will be argued that this perception of the advocate's role is due to historical upsets at the end of the Roman Republic, of which Cicero is the most relevant witness. This research has been clearly supported by the lexical analysis of antonymous terms like providentia and temeritas. It will be demonstrated that Cicero's forensic perspective changes not only during the different phases of his political career, but also along with the evolution of the legal system in the Late Republic.
