From the late 15th century onward, scholars across Europe began to write books about how to read and evaluate histories. These pioneering works - which often take surprisingly modern-sounding positions - grew from complex debates about law, religion and classical scholarship. In this book, based on his Trevelyan Lectures in 2005, Grafton explains why so many of these works were written, why they attained so much insight and why, in later centuries, scholars gradually forgot that they had existed.
