The Reception of Herodotus in Antiquity & Beyond
This project will provide the first extended and detailed account of the reception of Herodotus, the first European historian, with a particular emphasis on the geographical space of Europe (Greece, Byzantium, Rome, Italy, France, Germany, Poland and Great Britain). The ancient Greek historian Herodotus has been both controversial and influential through time, called, for instance, 'Father of History' (Cicero, 1st century BC), 'Father of Lies' (Juan Luis Vives, 16th century), and author of ‘world literature’s first great work of reportage’ (Kapuściński, 21st century).
