Summary

This chapter examines aspects of coordination in the language of Latin prayers. The general question addressed concerns the sense in which early Latin features manifest themselves in prayers, and whether the term ‘early Latin’ is an appropriate designation of any peculiarities of prayer coordination. The results of the inquiry on ‘early’ prayers in the corpus considered in the chapter is that asyndeton bimembre, though in use, was not in high fashion, and that end-of-list coordination was preferred to long asyndeta and multiple coordinations, a preference that is the reverse of that of genres other than prayers in the early period and later.
