Monumenta Germaniae Historica - Studien zur Geschichte der Mittelalterforschung
The Monumenta Germaniae Historica (MGH), founded in 1819 by Freiherr vom Stein for the publication of medieval German historical sources, had a considerable impact on Germany's self-image in the 19th century, served as a model for other research institutions and repeatedly attracted important scholars. Since then, they have remained devoted to the principle of source-critical research, but have by no means been unaffected by the political and cultural changes of their time. They made the transition from national romanticism and the Frankfurt National Assembly to a Prussian, later German institution, from a learned society to a publicly endowed institute.
The series "Studies on the History of Medieval Studies" aims to publish studies on the history of the Monumenta Germaniae Historica as well as on general historical research and the distinguished scholars who have influenced it with reference to the MGH. In doing so, not only methodological and theoretical aspects are to be considered, but also the interconnectedness of historical science with culture, politics, economy and society.
