Overview

Xenophon, also known as Xenophon of Athens, pulled from a wide repertoire of experiences—mercenary, soldier, philosopher, and historian—to write on a range of topics, including Socrates’ philosophy, life in ancient Greece and Persia, and the history of the fourth century. His interests in history, writing, and philosophy allowed him to write some of the most relevant descriptions of life in his time period, such as Hellenica, a continuation of Thucydides’ Greek history, and Anabasis, an exciting collection of stories and adventures. Having served in multiple wars (and being exiled from his own country), Xenophon had many experiences with politics and government policies; he shares his views in the Cyropaedia vols. 1–2. Despite Xenophon’s hunger for excitement, he was a philosopher at heart. He enjoyed the company of Socrates and Plato and often wrote about their philosophies, especially Socrates’. Memorabilia, Oeconomicus and Symposium and Apology contain a collection of stories depicting the character of both Plato and Socrates, as well as discussion of Socrates’ philosophy from an angle much different than readers of Plato are used to reading.

    Xenophon's Cyropaedia gives a version of the origin of Cyrus the Great, that he gained the throne of the kingdom of Media peacefully as a nephew and son-in-law of Cyaxares II, rather than conquering it by force according to Herodotus. Xenophon was later than Herodotus; but he had insider connection to Cyrus the Younger as a mercenary fighting for him. Herododus was a traveler who heard from the streets of Persia the propaganda from Cyrus and Darius I. Therefore Cyropaedia is an extremely valuable source.

    Xenophon's Anabasis is an enjoyable and thrilling account of what can be considered the forerunner of Alexander the Great's invasion of the Persian Empire. The Anabasis is the story of Greek mercenaries who picked the wrong Persian to fight for in a Persian civil war. The Greeks beat the Persians in front of them, but Cyrus the Persian was killed, their leader. So the Anabasis is the story of their retreat from the Persian Empire. The Greek is not so difficult for Classical Greek. The study of the Anabasis helps one's mastery of Greek. And the Loeb classics have valuable indices for Bible background studies.
