Xenophon’s “Anabasis” and its Reception

Edited by: Tim Rood and Melina Tamiolaki

This edited volume constitutes the first large-scale collaborative reflection on Xenophon’s Anabasis, gathering experts on Greek historiography and Xenophon. It provides a linear reading of the Anabasis through chapters on select episodes; an in-depth exploration of recurrent themes; and an investigation of the manifold reception of this work in Antiquity, Byzantium, the Renaissance, and the modern period. An envoi discusses the benefits of teaching Xenophon and the Anabasis.
