Mito e história nas Histórias de Heródoto

Camila Condilo

Resumo


Este artigo discute o tratamento que Heródoto dá aos mitos na obra Histórias. Tomando como ponto de partida o argumento de Robert Fowler sobre a controversa relação entre mythos e logos, sugiro que Heródoto aborda mito de uma forma coerente e sistematizada em sua narrativa. Para tanto, estabeleço uma definição de mito e analiso evidências de genealogias mitológicas nas Histórias a partir da focalização dos relatos do próprio autor ou de suas fontes.
