Summary: Working with a combination of rhetorical criticism, speech act analysis and reception criticism, the strategies of alienation and re-identification in Galatians are investigated. The occurrence of these two interrelated strategies is traced throughout Galatians. Paul applies various kinds of vituperatio to estrange his Galatian readers from his Galatian opponents.
