Abstract | Full Text

The methods and perspectives of historiographical reconstructions not only have not lost their validity, but are more essential than ever in a time when adherence to the present prevails, and data and information can be easily retrieved in excessive quantity and without differentiation. Within this overflow, the theses of historical interpretation (including those pinned down in a handbook) can provide a productive approach, as well as a filter, which helps recognize, in the present, traces of layers from a past that has by no means faded away forever.
