History as record and interpretation, just as history as past actuality, has been in constant change. Tempora mutantur, et nos mutamur in. illis is the inexorable law of life and of living academic disciplines as well. The history of historiography powerfully demonstrates the truism that each generation writes its own history. As the world view of humanity changes, the new criteria of evaluating the human story necessitates a reworking of the history of the past.
