Abstract:

Herodotus is often criticised for his mythical representation of historical events. However, this offers an important key to the understanding of the text. Starting with the reconstruction of a contemporary mythical-ritual framework, in her reading of the Histories Katharina Wesselmann uses the associative content of the traditional themes of iniquity, madness, trickery and transition which underpin the Histories. In this way Herodotus no longer appears as the father of history writing, as Cicero called him, but rather as the heir to a tradition of storytelling.
