The paper examines invective text types of the 16th century by means of rhetoric-historical considerations. The central question is which invective concern is claimed on the title page and how it relates to the rest of the text. The guiding idea is that the reconstruction of the rhetorical concern is possible by means of the genera doctrine of rhetoric and that it allows to describe potential patterns of reception in order to plausibilise potential effects. The following considerations are intended to be understood as a methodological contribution to the interpretation of the potential reception of invective writings of the 16th century against the background of the argumentation strategies articulated on the title page.
