Christian  Meier - The Historian and the Contemporary


For the first time in one volume: the inaugural lecture and the farewell lecture of the famous ancient historian

What is the connection between the work of a historian and his own biography and the age he lives in? What contribution can be made to the present day by historiography? This is a question Christian Meier, Germany's most renowned historian, has gone over in his mind many times. On the occasion of his 85th birthday he has been looking back and reflecting on the problems arising from the relationship between the world of history and the territory of historians.

"Christian Meier will not be able to undo in a hurry the effect he has had on the republic of scholars and the educated public."
