Sample text

Museums, Historical Associations, Edition Projects The task of mediating and researching history was not restricted to schools and universities as public institutions of learning. In response to the unsettling upheavals of the years around 1800, representatives of both the bourgeoisie and nobility began to collect historical artefacts and sources and founded the first historical museums. A well-known example is Hans von Aufseß who collected sources on the history of the Alte Reich and on ‘patriotic archaeology’ (Vaterländische Altertumskunde) from 1820 (Hakelberg 2004).

For Macaulay it is beyond all questions that she was devoted to civil rights and the concept of liberty as strongly as her male colleagues were. For her, writing true history was not a matter of gender but a matter of the correct conviction. The ancient republics remained the famous model English history had to compete with (Wiseman 2001: 186). When Macaulay attacks Hume and his History of England (Hume 1754–62) in the sixth volume of her own work, it is mostly because of his – in her opinion – biased Tory point of view, one which she refutes ardently.

What is, according to Macaulay, a good historian? How should a good historian tell their story? What is the duty of a good historian? And how does a good historian establish historical truth? Secondly, and this is the main point of this chapter, I will contrast the British with the German situation. Why do we not find a German Catharine Macaulay? Who actually wrote history in eighteenth- and nineteenth-century Germany? Giving some consideration to the historiography of Leopold von Ranke I try to show why there were no professional women historians.
