Otto of Freising and Historical Knowledge

Quaestio 15:31-45 (2015)
  Copy   BIBTEX


Otto of Freising was one of the most philosophical historians of the Middle Ages who reflected on the position of historical knowledge among the arts. His History of the Two Cities adjusts earlier models of universal history to show, in the light of his interpretation of Daniel’s prophecy in the Old Testament, how far the Roman Empire had declined, a tragedy that nonetheless carried within it signs of progress and divine interventions. His Deeds of Frederick Barbarossa further illustrate Otto’s belief that history teaches philosophical lessons.
