Here, at last, are the long-awaited Sather Classical Lectures of the great historian Arnaldo Momigliano, In a masterly survey of the origins of ancient historiography, Momigliano captures those features of an ancient historian's work that not only gave it importance in its own day but also encouraged imitation and exploitation in later centuries. He reveals the extent to which Greek, Persian, and Jewish historians influenced the Western historiographic tradition, and then goes on to examine the first Roman historians and the emergence of national history. In the course of his exposition, he traces the development of antiquarian studies as distinctive branch of historical research from antiquity to the modern period, discusses the place of Tacitus in historical thought, and explores the way in which ecclesiastical historiography has developed a tradition of its own. All these lectures illustrate Momigliano's unrivaled ability to combine the study of classical texts and the history of classical scholarship. First delivered in 1962, the lectures were revised during the next fifteen years and then held for annotation that was never completed. They are now published from the author's manuscripts, collated and checked by Momigliano's literary executor, Anne Marie Meyer, of the Warburg Institute, with a foreword by Riccardo Di Donato, of the University of Pisa. The text is printed as the author left it. Sather Classical Lectures, 54

From the Inside Flap:

"The book is marvelously erudite, using the historiography of the ancient world to set off on am arch through the ages. What Momigliano brings to the subject that no one else can is a keen scent for the Nachleben of classical authors. His intimate knowledge of Renaissance scholarship and his familiarity with modern intellectual history give this text dimensions that no comparable work possesses."--Erich S. Gruen, University of California, Berkeley "These lectures are vintage Momigliano, full of deep learning, new associations, sound judgments, mastery of a broad range of literature from several different cultures, and all bearing the inimitable stamp of one of this century's leading intellectual historians. Here is a fascinating, original exploration of how the aims and methods of historians in Isreal, Greece, and Rome helped shape the development of Western historiography."--Ronald S. Stroud, University of California, Berkeley

About the Author:

Arnaldo Momigliano (1908-87) was born and educated in Italy. He was appointed to the chair of Roman history at the University of Turin in 1936, but deprived of his professorship under Mussolini's racial decree, he settled in Oxford in 1939. He was Professor of Ancient History at University College London from 1951 until 1975 and Alexander White Visiting Professor at the University of Chicago from 1975 to 1987. His many books include The Development of Greek Biography (1971), Alien Wisdom: The Limits of Hellenization (1975), and the eleven volumes of essays entitled Contributi alla Storia degli Studi Classici e del Mondo Antico.
