Chapter Summary

This front matter section of the book Brill's Companion to George Grote and the Classical Tradition contains a notes on contributors and the table of contents. George Grote's afterlife in the history of classical studies is marked by a series of profoundly and unequivocally eulogistic accounts. A hundred years later Arnaldo Momigliano, in his 1952 inaugural lecture at Grote's college, University College London, pledged the encomium of the master historian in remarkably embellished language - yet unsurprisingly an amalgamation of the eulogies and conclusions of Freeman, Gomperz and Newman: Grote was, for Momigliano, essentially the founder of modern historiography of ancient Greece, who combined in his narrative "passionate moral and political interest, vast learning and respect for the evidence".

Keywords: ancient Greece; Arnaldo Momigliano; George Grote; modern historiography
