A Companion to Greek and Roman Historiography

A Companion to Greek and Roman Historiography reflects the new directions and interpretations that have arisen in the field of classical historiography in the past few decades. In a series of cutting-edge articles by authoritative scholars, this resource communicates the results of recent research, and demonstrate the diversity of approaches towards the past in studies of the ancient world.

The Companion includes five sections. The first presents broad, diachronic treatments of important issues in the writing of history in antiquity. In the second section, the major genres and sub-genres of classical historiography are covered in individual articles. The third section presents readings of individual historians and works, while the fourth section looks at those genres – biography, epic and fiction - on the borders of historiography. The final part explores the transition into late Antiquity.
