The Oxford History of Historical Writing

Monika Baár

Oxford University Press

This chapter argues that national history constituted the predominant tradition of European historiography, generating intricate links between historiographical and political developments. The chapter also looks at the most dominant concepts that consider the former lands of the Habsburg Monarchy and the Polish-Lithuanian Commonwealth as its main constituents, as well as touching upon milestones in Latvian and Estonian historiography. This chapter also points out certain key events, such as the revolutionary year of 1848 in the Habsburg Monarchy and the conclusion of the Austro-Hungarian Compromise in 1867, which shaped the trajectories of historical writing. The assassination of Archduke Franz Ferdinand in Sarajevo, which led to the outbreak of World War I and the defeat of the empire, marked further crucial junctures.

Keywords:   European historiography, Habsburg Monarchy, Polish-Lithuanian Commonwealth, Estonian historiography, Austro-Hungarian Compromise, Archduke Franz Ferdinand
