  • Examples Of Topos Of Righteousness

    A topos of righteousness occurs when an author declares the receptor or prolocutor so. By classifying the figure in this manner, the author legitimates his message through cultic or ethical purity as the figure in the narrative becomes impeachable. This term, paired with justice, occurs in Akkadian literature (kittum u mīs̆arum) as an “ethical ideal,” and the same idea existed in Hebraic thought as the base on which Torah worked.
