Making history: Edward Augustus Freeman and Victorian cultural politics

Making history: Edward Augustus Freeman and Victorian cultural politics
Making history: Edward Augustus Freeman and Victorian cultural politics
The volume fills a historiographic gap in the intellectual history of Victorian Britain by providing the first comprehensive, scholarly account of one of its most articulate and outspoken public intellectuals, E. A. Freeman. There are no other "recent or scheduled publications" on this subject. The volume provides a biographical as well as intellectual survey of Freeman's wide-ranging activities beyond historical writing, none of which have been addressed in this level of detail before. These chapters intersect with historical episodes such as Tractarianism, Liberal Anglicanism and the Gothic Revival, cutting across the divides traditionally separating architectural, political, church and imperial history. New influences and nemeses emerge from this consideration of the 1830s-1850s, providing context and added depth to the familiar view of the mature Freeman, to his historical writing as well as to the personal feuds (e.g. with Froude) for which he was equally known.

Abstract

The volume fills a historiographic gap in the intellectual history of Victorian Britain by providing the first comprehensive, scholarly account of one of its most articulate and outspoken public intellectuals, E. A. Freeman. There are no other "recent or scheduled publications" on this subject. The volume provides a biographical as well as intellectual survey of Freeman's wide-ranging activities beyond historical writing, none of which have been addressed in this level of detail before. These chapters intersect with historical episodes such as Tractarianism, Liberal Anglicanism and the Gothic Revival, cutting across the divides traditionally separating architectural, political, church and imperial history. New influences and nemeses emerge from this consideration of the 1830s-1850s, providing context and added depth to the familiar view of the mature Freeman, to his historical writing as well as to the personal feuds (e.g. with Froude) for which he was equally known.
