Luke-Acts is the first early Christian writing to which serious historiographical interest can be attributed. In view of the intense debate in recent years concerning the character and forms of classical historiography, this collection seeks to clarify the relationship of the Gospel to classical historiography, illustrated through the comparison of exemplary texts. In doing so, it reveals connections to early Jewish historiography and the Septuagint, to Greek and Roman historiography as well as further early Christian development up to Eusebius and Theodoret. Furthermore, it includes discussion about the genre of Acts in relation to the epos, the literary novel and the canonical Gospels, and also about the methods of classical historiography and essential aspects of the conception of Lukas’ writing.
