AN OFFPRINT FROM Ancient Historiography on War and Empire edited by Timothy Howe, Sabine Müller and Richard Stoneman Hardback edition: ISBN.
And yet, because we moderns are not contemporary with these ancient authors, and are thus not their intended audiences, we can often miss important historiographic contexts. Ancient historiography and ancient history the literary critic.
The challenge confronting modern scholars, then, is how to situate the historical context about which the Histories were written, but at the same time, attend to clues that link texts to contemporary concerns.
This book, which began as a conference in Athens focused on Greek language historiography and history, attempts to root out those historical contexts and clues.
The essays offered here take Greek historiography and ground it in specific cultural settings, all the while emphasizing the importance of literary and cultural context. The book has been divided into five parts: These categories were chosen less out of a desire to create some sort of geographic coverage than as an attempt to follow the evidence and focus of extant Greek language historiography.
Here, Almagor analyzes both Persian royal inscriptions and Greek historiography to explain how and why Greek authors came to assign the Great King seemingly divine honours that he himself never explicitly claimed. Here, Greenwalt considers the presentation of Macedonian royal power.
By taking these murders in tandem, as the ancient historiographers do, rather than treating them piecemeal, as individual murder-mysteries, we underscore the importance of context and, in so doing, offer a different way of seeing.
Franca Landucci Gattinoni closes the theme of Macedonian royal power by analysing the political elements embedded in Macedonian funeral ceremonies and the cult of the dead — especially those sponsored by Cassander, son of Antipater in BCE — as reported in the historiography of Diodorus and now seen among archaeological remains of the Great Tumulus at Vergina. Next, Hugh Bowden considers eagle symbolism as a vehicle for understanding how stories of mantic activity facilitated the didactic, ideological and narrative purposes of the Alexander historians.
As with taxation, prophesy had a rich life in Greek literature and culture before the Macedonian conqueror, and Bowden offers a richly learned study of how prognostication might function for both Alexander and Alexander historians.
Jacek Rzepka continues the themes of narrative and intertextuality by examining casualty figures among the Alexander historiographers. The next essay offers a change in focus: Olga Palagia takes the conversation in a profitable new direction by investigating the artistic evidence concerning the military actions of Alexander against Darius.
Ancient historiography and ancient history reinvented and reinterpreted by Jewish intellectuals to assist Jewish culture as it navigated the dangerous world of the Seleukid and Ptolemaic empires.
The last part of the book explores the final great movement of ancient Greek historiography, the so-called Second Sophistic. In her view, Second Sophistic authors played with traditional conceptions of appropriate and inappropriate ways to enjoy the arts so that their audiences might better understand their own Imperial Rome.
By linking inappropriate enjoyment of the arts with historical examples of tyranny, these authors both deflected criticism from contemporary rulers and gave their audiences much food for thought regarding proper uses of leisure time.
The final essay of the collection, by Sulochana Asirvatham, continues to follow royal power and its criticism. Here, Asirvatham demonstrates that for the authors of the Second Sophistic the only meaningful challenges to Roman authority were those that happened in the realm of intellectual discourse, and so, like the other periods under discussion, where powerful rulers controlled politics, the lessons of the past were used to teach both rulers and ruled how to behave.
All here agree that Greek writers used historical data to create not just an interpretation of the past for their audiences but also to establish and curate their own authorial personae.
