Summary
Drawing on textual and rhetorical analysis, Peter Van Nuffelen proposes a major revaluation of 'The Histories Against the Pagans' of Orosius, arguing that it is a much more subtle and complex text than usually assumed. Van Nuffelen uses Orosius as a lens to consider 4th- and 5th-century historiography
