Overview

In this eight volume collection on the Persian Wars, Greek historian Herodotus, the "Father of History," gives a cultured and first-hand examination of the ancient world surrounding the rise and rule of the Persian Empire alongside a concise history and cultural background of Scythia and Egypt. Herodotus, who spent much of his life traveling, was one of the most erudite historians of his time. His historical accounts and cultural depictions are based primarily on his personal experience and supplemented with his historical acumen. This collection is perfect for both expert and casual historians interested in the specific details of the battles from the Persian Wars, and cultural portrayals of significant civilizations from the time period.

This collection contains the complete texts in their Loeb Classical Library editions. Each text is included in its original Greek, with an English translation for side-by-side comparison. Use Logos’ language tools to go deeper into the Greek text with linked translations, definitions, and pronunciation tools. You can also use the dictionary lookup tool to examine difficult English words used by the translator. Quick and easy access to maps and charts, as well as definitions and lexical information, allows you to understand historical events like never before.
