Western classical antiquity

Identifying the members of other human groups with elements in the Western past is not an obvious thing to do. Fabian suggests that its seeds lie in the linear concept of time found in the Judaeo-Christian tradition – so different from the cyclical conceptions of time found in a range of other religious traditions – but that the ‘decisive steps’ that led to the emergence of a model in which other peoples could be equated with aspects of the past were ‘a succession of attempts to secularise Judaeo-Christian time by generalizing and universalising it’.21 McGrane reinforces this point in describing the attempt by Enlightenment philosophers to establish a universal history, within which Christian/Biblical chronology was the yardstick:

The Bible was not a centrally important text in history, but rather the very ground and horizon upon which Enlightenment ‘history’ took on the structuring and ordering it did take on. The Bible gives place to the unfolding of history; Biblical chronology makes history possible, makes the ordering that history presupposes possible.22
