This book provides a series of essays from members of the Canadian Society of Biblical Studies' Special Seminar on Ancient Historiography. The purpose of the Ancient Historiography Seminar is to advance the study of ancient historiography within biblical and ancient Near Eastern scholarship. This book will provide fresh perspectives from new scholars while engaging lingering questions from seasoned ones, and the function of historiography in biblical literature continues to be an issue of wide disagreement among biblical scholars but an emerging consensus considers it to serve primarily an interpretive function. Such a function(s) are discussed vis--vis J. Huizinga's broad, theoretical definition of historiography as "the intellectual form in which a civilization renders account to itself of its past." Based on the latter, issues of historicity tend to be downplayed as the central locus; given the assumption that these are modern scholarly concerns. Thus, socio-historical intent (ideology) tends to be given priority, seeking to understand these writings on their own terms. This shift in focus will be a key feature of the volume.
