Thus, during the chivalrous Middle Ages historical discourse was shaped by the
desire to record and preserve the fame of great men and heroic deeds. Historical
truth consisted in the representation of the exemplary. Renaissance
historiography, inspired by the master historians of the classical age Herodotus
and Pliny, Thucydides and Polybius, incorporated the testimony of the
eyewitness into its representation of historical reality. This concept of historical
truth acquired particular ...

The speakers of the early Khoesan languages can be proposed to have spread
this tradition over large areas of eastern Africa, and later into southern Africa,
because they were the ones, after the onset of the LGM, who developed the most
effective ways to exploit the foraging resources of the drier environments of those
regions. Migration did not recede as a factor in African history during the past
three thousand years. The literature of African history since 1000 bce abounds
with ...

Mr. Grote nowhere very specifically defines what he understands by authentic
historical testimony. I presume that he has thought it unnecessary to do so, as
acquiescing in the common doctrine which restricts historical narrative, as distinct
from popular legend, to what is attested to a greater or less extent by the
evidence of written transmission. Such evidence admits, I apprehend, of being
classed under the three following heads, or degrees of authenticity. First, the
evidence of ...

... except a few military terms and local names—stratum, street, (Stratford), cester,
castrum, Lancaster, Gloucester, coln, colonia, Lincoln, pont, pons, Pont-e-fract, (
Pom-fret)— our tongue received no accessions from the Latin during the long
period of Roman dominion. But with all possible deference to the judgments of
the accomplished scholars who adopt this view, it seems unsupported by
trustworthy historical testimony, and directly at variance with the evidence of the
language itself ...

Fiction — Subjective construct obtained by means of the imagination, which,
however, represents experiencial, emotional, or intellectual truths translated into
language. Although fiction is commonly considered to be separate from history,
Burgos and Menchu's book challenges the traditional disciplinary boundaries
between fiction and history by intertwining the historical value of testimony with
various techniques of fiction to the point that they become inseparable. See

answered by suffering the primitive language to remain unaltered in one house
and by suddenly producing two other languages hitherto unknown; I think it
highly probable at least, that one of the three tongues was in a great measure the
very tongue spoken by Noah and Adam. Be this however as it may, the language,
which Sir William calls Arabic, was spoken with mere dialectical variations from
