Herodotus

Herodotus

Herodotus was born around 480 B.C. and died close to 420 B.C. He is known as the Father of History because he was the first to present a cohesive and unified historical description.

He went on great journeys, which then served as the basis for his work - taking the name "History of Herodotus" and was later divided into 9 books by Alexandrian librarians.

In his work, we see his attempt to analyze the causes of the historical facts and the motives objectively and impartially of the major players, but it is not lacking in its overlying idea that there is an ethical law that governs the fate of man.

Moreover, his work is considered the most valid historical source regarding the Persian Wars as well as being an invaluable link to the evolution of historical Research.
