== De indagine historica Thucydidaea ==
Cum de [[Bellum Peloponnesiacum|bello Peloponnesiaco]] scribere incipere vellet, Thucydides non solum accepit voces rumoresque quos testes eventorum ei praebebant, sed ipse etiam testimonia manu habita ingeniose quaesivit. Relatorum omnium autem tantum evidentissimis credebat, sententias comparabat, ceterum dein ab aliquo ad aliquem locum transibat ad credibilia invenienda. Olim ad exemplum praebendum apud [[Delphi|Delphos]] perventus, sepulcris inventis, ex sepulcralibus ornamentis modoque funerandi comperit sepultos [[Asia]]ticos esse. Hac indagine utens igitur Thucydides rinvenire ac restituere potuit plus quam quaestiones antiquae orales potuerant, id est [[Herodotus|Herodoti]] modus indagandi.
<!-- '''Thucydides''' (c. [[460 BC]] – c. [[395 BC]]), [[Ancient Greek|Greek]], ''Thoukudídēs'') was an ancient [[Greeks|Greek]] [[history|historian]], and the author of the ''[[History of the Peloponnesian War]],'' which recounts the [[5th century BC]] war between [[Sparta]] and [[Athens]] to the year [[411 BC]]. Thucydides is considered by many to be a scientific historian because of his efforts in his ''History'' to describe the human world in terms of cause and effect, his strict standards of gathering evidence, and his neglect of the gods in explaining the events of the past. Other scholars lay greater emphasis on the ''History''’s elaborate literary artistry and the powerful rhetoric of its speeches and insist that its author exploited non-"scientific" literary genres no less than newer, rationalistic modes of explanation.
