PDF/EPUB Ἰστορίαι eBook Ì Î nessville.me Î Ηρόδοτος was an ancient Greek historian who was born in Halicarnassus Caria modern day Bodrum Turkey and lived in the fifth century BCE c – BCE He has been called The Father of History as well as The Father of Lies He was the first historian known to collect his materials systematically test their accuracy to a certain extent and arrange them in a well constructed and vivid narrative The Histories—his masterpiece and the only work he is known to have produced—is a record of his inuiry or ἱστορία historía a word that passed into Latin and acuired its modern meaning of history being an investigation of the origins of the Greco Persian Wars and including a wealth of geographical and ethnographical information Although some of his stories were fanciful and others inaccurate he claimed he was reporting only what had been told to him Little is known of his personal historyIt was not until the time of Herodotus that gods began to have less influence upon history that was written yet it was still implied because of the largely accepted view of the Greeks and the expectations that they may have had of how The Histories would be written History was becoming of a “knowledge” rather than an amusement Because of Herodotus wanting people to accept what he had to write he implemented stories that may have not directly correlated to gods but rather implemented the idea that miracles or supernatural events took place As was the story of Arion and the dolphin While on a boat the men found out that Arion who was a musician was worth lots of money and decided to have him killed The crew gave him two options that either he jump ship or they kill him on the spot Arion flung himself into the water and a dolphin carried him to shoreHerodotus was concerned with putting pleasure before knowledge unless he did not believe that the gods had a dramatic influence on history and was rather just trying to please his audience Like the story of the king having his servant look upon his naked wife and when spotting him hiding asked him to kill her husband This like many stories of Herodotus are told in great detail and for the simplicity of dramatic effect This refers back to the way bards used to tell their poems or stories to their audience Herodotus was accused by many because of such detailed accounts and even called a liar by some In his writing we can already see that there was no direct association with gods.

Progress through digressionI suppose my first acuaintance with the work of Herodotus was through that technicolor cold war drama The 300 Spartans in which a rampantly heterosexual force of Spartans defends freedom liberty and all that good stuff from allegedly ferocious yet ineffective hordes of freedom hating Persians The appalling appealing simplicity of that film is a grave disservice to the genius of Herodotus – already mauled by Thucydides barely after completing – if complete it is – his surviving workLater I was shocked into actually reading the first half of an old Everyman edition of Herodotus by a National Geographic article but it was only now at an advanced age older uite pos
