The introduction discusses what is known at present of Diodorus’ life and his work, the methods he used to apply structure to his work, and the views that guided him. Furthermore, ample attention is paid to the manuscript tradition on which the several editions that present the current audience with Diodorus’ works were grounded as well as to the main editions of the work from the medieval period onwards.
