Biography and Panegyric
This introductory chapter explains the coverage of this book, which is about Greek biography and panegyric in late antiquity during the period from 250 to 450 A.D. With one exception, the chapters in this volume originated as papers presented to an international symposium at the Center for the Study of European Civilization at the University of Bergen in August 1996. This chapter provides background information on the origins of Greek biographical and panegyrical writing and evaluates their relevance to ancient tradition.
