About this item
"Cassius Dio : Greek Intellectual and Roman Politician, a collection of essays on this historian, is the first to appear in the new Brill series Historiography of Rome and its Empire. The volume brings together case studies that highlight various aspectsof Dio's Roman History, focusing on previously ignored or misunderstood aspects of his narrative. The main purpose of the volume is to pursue a combined historiographic, literary and rhetorical analysis of Dio's work and of its political and intellectualagendas. Dio's work is often used as a handy resource, with scholars looking at isolated sections of his annalistic structure. Contrary to this approach, the volume puts emphasis on Cassius Dio and his Roman History in its historiographical setting, thusallowing us to link and understand the different parts of his work. Contributors are: Christopher Burden-Strevens, Jesper Carlsen, Marianne Coudry, Andriy Fomin, Alain Gowing, Brandon Jones, Adam Kemezis, Carsten Hjort Lange, Jesper Majbom Madsen, Christopher Mallan, Josiah Osgood, Jussi Rantala, Verena Schulz, S²ren Lund S²rensen, Gianpaolo Urso and Richard Westall"--Provided by publisher.
