By Werner Paravicini

Karl der Kühne, der große Herzog von Burgund, versuchte jahrelang, den berühmtesten Condottiere seiner Zeit in seinen Dienst zu ziehen. Colleoni zog aber nie über die Alpen, die Republik Venedig gab ihn nicht frei. Weshalb er überhaupt Burgunder sein wollte, lassen Dokumente in der Pariser Nationalbibliothek erahnen: Er hoffte mit Hilfe der Burgunder, Herr und Fürst über das zu der Zeit mit Frankreich verbündete Mailand zu werden. So entstand eine Interessengemeinschaft, die für Karl durchaus von Vorteil struggle.

Transformationen des Historischen: Geschichtserfahrung und by Dominik Fugger

By Dominik Fugger

Die Beiträger dieses Bandes möchten Geschichtsschreibung als erfahrungsbezogene und erfahrungsgenerierende Praxis am Beispiel von Ferdinand Gregorovius (1821-1891) verstehbar machen. Ausgangspunkt ist hierbei die individuelle Erfahrung von Geschichtlichkeit.
Gregorovius' unmittelbare, wenn auch sehr voraussetzungsreiche Anverwandlung der Geschichte bildet die erste der titelgebenden 'Transformationen des Historischen'. Ohne einen tieferen Blick auf die ideengeschichtlichen Bedingungen ist ein solches Geschichtserlebnis nicht zu verstehen. Soziale Wirksamkeit kann es nur in produktiver Umsetzung entfalten, denn nur auf diese Weise lässt es sich mitteilen. Dies ist die zweite Transformation des Historischen. Der Innovationsgrad der dadurch angeregten Werke, ihre Wahrnehmung durch die Zeitgenossen und ihre lebenspraktischen Folgen für den Geschichtsschreiber zeigen die kulturelle Bedeutung in der Zeit. Die folgenden Generationen können sich zu einem solchen Zugang ihrerseits nur historisch verhalten; um ihn erneut produktiv werden zu lassen, bedarf es weiterer Transformationen. Sie sind Gegenstand der Rezeptionsgeschichte. Die hier versammelten Beiträge widmen sich diesen Aspekten mit dem Ziel, einen Blick auf eine individuelle wie gesellschaftliche Funktion von Geschichte jenseits unmittelbarer diskursiver Inanspruchnahme freizugeben.
