Genesis as Dialogue

Thomas L. Brodie

Oxford University Press

Greco‐Persian culture encouraged theological inquiry, codification of law, and a transition from epic poetry to prose historiography. Wide‐ranging pioneering histories were written by Hecataeus, Herodotus, and Hellanicus. The Primary History as a whole – the entire wide‐ranging prose history – fits well into the Persian Empire.

Keywords:   codification of law, epic poetry, Hecataeus, Hellanicus, Herodotus, historiography, Persian empire, Primary History, theological inquiry
