The author examines the connection between rhetoric and bayan from the point of view of various authors and theological schools. First he examines the devices common to both theology and rhetoric (analogy, metaphor, istidlal, etc.) and then the question of bayan in the muʽtazilite and Sunnite traditions. He pays special attention to Qadi ʽAbd al-Jabbar, Hanbalism, Ibn Taymiyya and the Islamic rational theology (kalam).
