Authority and Tradition in Ancient Historiographyby John Marincola
Pub. Date: 10/28/2003
Publisher: Cambridge University Press
This book is a study of the various claims to authority made by the ancient Greek and Roman historians throughout their histories, and of the way in which the tradition of ancient historiography shaped their responses and molded the presentation of themselves to their audience. Guiding them in their claims to be authoritative was the tradition of the founders and best practitioners of history, Herodotus and Thucydides.
