Review quote

"On the whole, the contributions to this volume are of outstanding quality; each of them comes with a separate bibliography, which facilitates further research on individual aspects. Readers who are at home in the field of biblical studies will find many parallels to their own work and will certainly draw inspiration from this state-of-the-art product of one of our sister disciplines. It is most warmly recommended."Stephan Witetschek in: Review of Biblical Literature 2009 "Insgesamt liefert der Band einen instruktiven Einblick in die vielschichtigen Probleme der biographischen und autobiographischen Produktion der hellenistischen Zeit. Ein differenzierter Index der Quellen sowie ausfuhrliche Literaturhinweise am Ende eines jeden Beitrages bilden eine wichtige Dokumentation des Textbestandes und der Forschungssituation. [...]Keine Diskussion uber die hellenistische Biographie wird in Zukunft ohne die Referenz auf Die griechische Biographie in hellenistischer Zeit auskommen konnen.Holger Sonnabend in: http: //hsozkult.geschichte.hu-berlin.de/rezensionen/2008-2-162"show more
