Josephus

Josephus (c. 1st century)

“Diligence in a historian is not simply a matter of rearranging the overall scheme and detailed order of someone else’s work, but lies in tackling new subjects and creating a historical structure of one’s own.”

  • The Jewish War (Book I, section 15) by Josephus, translated by Martin Hammond (Oxford University Press, 2017).
