(p.47) 2 Travel, Suicide, and Self-Construction
Transient Apostle

Timothy Luckritz Marquis

Yale University Press

This chapter examines the basic route of the reading of Chrysostom. It shows that the start of 2 Corinthians 1–9 is composed of a rhetorical technique framed to explain failed travel plans. It then discusses how Paul was able to adapt the basic conventions of the concept of travel apology and his juxtaposition of travel and death (i.e. death by suicide) as modern discourses of self-revelation. This chapter is also concerned with Paul attempting to fix his relationship with the Corinthian community and the social and emotional effects of his rhetoric.

Keywords:   rhetorical technique, failed travel plans, Chrysostom, travel apology, suicide, Corinthian community, rhetoric, emotional effects
