Die antike Historiographie und die Anfänge der christlichen Geschichtsschreibung
Ed. by Becker, Eve-Marie
Aims and Scope
The papers aim to identify the aspects – historical and political, cultural, literary-historical and religious-historical, as well as theological – connected with the beginnings of historiography in Antiquity and to contrast and compare them in culture and literature. Discussions on the concept of ‘beginning’ are also addressed and located within the history of knowledge and scholarship. Individual papers are concerned with special forms of historiography (apocalyptics, biography, lists).
