(p.317) 8 Conclusion
Kinship in Thucydides

Maria Fragoulaki

Oxford University Press

This chapter summarizes the main contribution of this study. On the basis of recent anthropological work on broadened notions of kinship and sociology of emotions and ethnicity, it suggests a new typology and a new theoretical basis for intercommunal kinship in the ancient Greek world. Also, through the lens of kinship, it provides a new appreciation of Thucydides’ historical interpretations and authorial ambition and interaction with tradition.

Keywords:   myth, history, historical narrative, Thucydidean studies, intercommunal kinship
