  Panegyric - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
A Panegyric is a formal public speech delivered in high praise of a person or thing, a generally highly studied and discriminating eulogy, not expected to be critical.
The most celebrated example of a Latin panegyric is that delivered by the younger Pliny (AD 100) in the senate on the occasion of his assumption of the consulship, containing a somewhat fulsome eulogy of Trajan.
Towards the end of the 3rd and during the 4th century, as a result of the orientalizing of the Imperial court by Diocletian, it became customary to celebrate as a matter of course the superhuman virtues and achievements of the reigning emperor, in a formally staged literary event.

 Debord, Panegyric
Panegyric, from which the quotations above are taken, is an autobiography of a sort - a remarkably uninformative sort.
Instead we have a celebration of the pure subjectivity of the situationist, the intransigence of the twenty-year-old genius; instead we have panegyric.
There are signs that Debord is aware of the corner into which his own theory has painted him; in the final chapter he intimates that the book was only intended as a self-portrait, and that the promised autobiography will appear in a subsequent volume.

 Rhetoric, Politics, Ethics 2005: Abstract
Both approaches focus on the tenuous relationship panegyric entertains with reality: in the first the stress is on the literary character of a panegyrical speech, in the second it is perceived as ideology.
In both cases, panegyric is a fa├žade that serves to hide the real acts of the emperor, be it by literary dressing-up or by propagandistic deformation.
In panegyrics, but also in many other writings of Late Antiquity, the acts of emperors, officials and clergy were measured by the ideal of the “unstained rule”.

 Chapter Two: The Encomia Nobilium and Horace's Panegyric Praxis
Nevertheless, the typical panegyric portrait of Horace drawn from this ode is incomplete and focuses on the last four lines and the prestige that Horace gained by executing his commission without recognizing how his acceptance of this public honor would have affected his audience's perception of his work then and generations later.
Horace constructs his panegyric to admit disputes (dubia) and conflicting viewpoints as is evident from the eulogy for Maximus, the recusatio to Iullus, the positioning of c.6 (its dramatic date versus publication date) and its mythological exempla.
The panegyric poet is the agent who creates the interpretive opportunity for ideas to be shaped into a shared cultural-political discourse, and by virtue of this act is a co-creator of ideology rather than in a responsive position as a mere reporter of any program that already exists.

 Introduction
Such aporia surely compounds the complexities of Horatian panegyric and may certainly be confused, arguably so, with the disputes within the text; however, these disputes are also encouraged by the very qualities and collective spirit of the panegyric.
These communal moments of Horatian panegyric, the experiences in our living and dying that necessitate we come together and on some level incorporate individual expressions, position the internal and external audiences not as passive spectators but as active participants who create and re-create the events.
Horace writes panegyric with tensions and conflicts that provoke his audience to become active interpreters, and as a result even the panegyrics for the imperial family do not offer easy resolutions between praise and blame or political and poetic power.

Like Dryden before him he used the panegyric as a means of expressing what he considered to be the nation's as well as his own fears in a time of great uncertainty.

 Bryn Mawr Classical Review 1999.10.13
The general introduction discusses the origin of the corpus of the XII panegyrics and their transmission, with their preservation into the modern era being due to a single, now lost, manuscript.
The relationship is more complex, since, although the speakers intended to please the emperors by their oratory and deal with congenial topics in a congenial way, they were not necessarily individually close enough to the court to be programmed mouth-pieces and were often acting on their own initiative, representing themselves or their cities.
Greek panegyrics are hardly mentioned, which is understandable given that the focus of the volume is historical, and surviving Greek examples (e.g.

That said, we moderns may also want to relearn the lost art of panegyric -- a public speech or writing in praise of some person, thing, or achievement -- and of praise songs in some oral traditions in Africa.
We moderns -- especially those of us who are immersed in liberal and/or Marxist traditions -- tend to feel that we are intellectually negligent and politically delinquent unless we constantly engage in ruthless criticism of all that exists.
The only respectable place for eloquent panegyrics and praise songs in modern, secular, and left-wing discourse may be obituaries.

"Panegyric" is Debord's autobiography; here for the first time in English is the second volume, published together with the spare text of the first.
Instead "Panegyric" finds Debord musing languidly in poetic prose on the subject of "what I have loved", "in this light" he states "everything else will become self-evident".
Employing much use of quotations from his literary heroes such as Clausewitz, Villion, De Quincey and Saint-Simon, Debord "derives" through fragmentary chapters covering his love of alcohol, Paris, women, abhorrence of work, admiration for the historical strategies of war and men of battle, evoking neither "blame nor criticism".

The orators are shown to be sophisticated, informed, and confident: their speeches are encoded expressions of local preoccupations.
What emerges is the realization that panegyric was a genre capable of great agility, and that through its exaggerated and artificial discourse, skilful orators could find meaningful expression for their particular concerns.

Hägg and Rousseau’s introduction concentrates on broad literary issues, tracing the history of their two genres back to the fourth century BC before surveying the texts discussed and considering how they should be read: biography is no more transparent than panegyric, in its own way creating a nexus between subject, text, immediate and future audience.
Edwards draws attention to the panegyrical nature of this and similarly titled works, leading to comparison with the Gospel of John.
Stopping short of calling Porphyry’s work a gospel, he points to common themes and elements, a demonstrable unity of aim and possible influence: Plotinus is presented as a pagan Christ.

 Greek Biography and Panegyric in Late Antiquity -- Tomas Hagg Philip Rousseau
This book focuses on the transition from ancient to Christian Hellenism as it was expressed in the biographical and panegyric literature of the period.
The essays show how literary genres focusing on individual lives help to reveal this historical process.
Collectively the essays go beyond discussion of particular texts to consider such general topics as strategies of rhetoric and representation, the place of classical Greek culture in both pagan and Christian education, and what is meant by philosophy as a way of life.
