About This Item

University of California Press. Very Good in Very Good dust jacket. 1985. Hardcover. 0520053982 . Scholar's bookplate to inner cover (G. P. Goold). Foxing/dustsoiling to top of textblock. DJ spine is sunned and discolored. ; Sather Classical Lectures 50; 205 pages; A Greek who lived in Asia Minor during the second century A.D., Pausanias traveled through Greece and wrote an invaluable description of its classical sites that is a treasure trove of information on archaeology, religion, history, and art. Although ignored during his own time, Pausanias is increasingly important in ours--to historians, tourists, and archaeologists. Christian Habicht offers a wide-ranging study of Pausanias' work and personality. He investigates his background, chronology, and methods, and also discusses Pausanias' value as a guide for modern scholars and travellers, his attitude toward the Roman world he lived in, and his reception among critics in modern times. A new preface summarizes the most recent scholarship. .
