Rhetoric and the writing of history provides an analytical overview of the vast range of historiography which was produced in western Europe over a thousand-year period between c.400 and c.1500. Concentrating on the general principles of classical rhetoric which informed so much of the language of this writing, alongside the more familiar traditions of ancient history, biblical exegesis and patristic theology, this survey is designed to serve as an introduction to the conceptual sophistication and semantic rigour with which medieval authors could approach their narratives of past and present events, and to the diversity of ends to which this history could then be put. By providing, in the process, a close reading of some of the historians who put these linguistic principles and strategies into practice (from Augustine and Orosius through Otto of Freising and William of Malmesbury to Machiavelli and Guicciardini), this study also traces, and questions, some of the key methodological changes that are traditionally taken to characterise the function and purpose of the western historiographical tradition in such a formative period of its development. The result is both an analytical introduction to the theory and practice of writing history in the Middle Ages and a timely reminder of the much longer temporal perspective from which more modern debates over the relationship between history and literary theory might be assessed.
