Historian. Perizonius stud ied arts and letters in Utrechtand Leiden. In 1681, he was appointed professor of history and rhetorics at the Academy of Franeker. In 1693, he received a post at the Universityof Leiden, where he would also teach Greek. His main interest was Roman history. Perizonius developed a critical-historical method, reinforced a century later by German scholar Barthold Georg Niebuhr (1776–1831); as a conse quence, many sources of Roman “history” were proved to be of only a mythical or pure literary nature.
