      EVENT DETAILS
      The Invention of History

      Many stories in the Bible and other ancient works may look like history to us, but they were composed before history existed as an idea. What are the circumstances that led Herodotus and Thucydides to develop discipline of History in the Western tradition? What made their accounts of events different from all other ancient stories like those found in the Iliad or the Odyssey? How should modern readers approach the Bible and what value, if any, can we find in its non-historical narratives?
