The article analyses Paul’s Epistle to the Galatians according to the principles of rhetorical criticism. This approach to biblical text has become prominent in the last four decades. Early adherents of this method worked under the assumption that Paul wrote in conformity with the then known manuals of rhetoric. To that effect, the introduction of the article questions the relationship between Paul’s epistles and the ancient rhetoric and literary world. It also analyses the possibility of accepting a broader understanding of rhetoric offered by the modern study of the discipline. The introduction is concluded by the question of the relationship between rhetoric and epistolography, as well as the question of partition of the rhetorical act and its application to the Epistle to the Galatians. It is followed by the analysis of the main rhetorical elements of the Epistle to the Galatians, which will, due to the limited space, be continued in a future issue of this journal.
