Based on the assumption that the middle recension of the Ignatian Corpus is pseudepigraphic, written and designed probably ca. 170 in Rome or Asia Minor as an integral collection of seven letters, this chapter identifies and discusses the literary themes – spread across the collection – of “speaking”, “being silent” and “listening” as motifs designed to help drive the rhetorical purpose of the letters, that is the author’s exhortation to his addressees regarding what he considers to be the true doctrine (γνώμη), the rejection of false teachings, the authority of the single ἐπίσκοπος and the meaning of martyrdom. The chapter concludes with some observations regarding the reception of the letter corpus, beginning with Irenaeus adv. haer. 5.28.4.
