Divinity and History

The Religion of Herodotus

Thomas Harrison

A Clarendon Press Publication

Oxford Classical Monographs

This book is a study of the religious beliefs of the ancient Greek historian Herodotus--his beliefs in divine retribution, in oracles and divination, in miracles or in fate. It seeks to show not only how such beliefs were central to his work, but also how they were compatible with lived experience.
