Example text

A strong sense of Irish difference marked Ireland out from imperialist England, but also from much of Europe, though early Ireland was also felt to represent a survival of a common Indo-European past. It was presented as a world of undeveloped sacral kingship, without institutions, its traditions in the hands of a pagan mandarin class, the filid, who could be variously seen as obscurantist pedants or keepers of a deep, specifically Irish, cultural tradition, but who were, and this was critical, Celtic and different.

In Scotland, the coming – or rather the influence of – the Normans has been important in historiographical periodization. Here, however, it has been a question of the activities of Normanizing native kings rather than invaders. But the result was, as in England, a pre-Norman period seen as peculiarly Celtic and as defining what was Scottish. The Scots’ experience of Reformation in some ways paralleled that of the English. 25 Twentieth-century Trends The use of the vernacular in the literature of early England – and Ireland, if not Wales – was an important component of the appeal of the early period to definers of the nation, in the sixteenth as in the nineteenth century.

One might be forgiven for seeing here some reflection of the current political struggle for Scotland’s soul; and yet another example of the implication of these periods of origins in the definition of such “souls” (below). 17 Such historiographical reflexivity or reflection is far less apparent in early English history. 18 All of this has made clear how far similar concepts of national identity and evolutionism influenced this formative period of English historical writing. It is clear how far the agenda of questions that Wendy Davies sees as characterizing English historiography emerged then: the story of parliament and the struggle for liberty plus the limitation of royal power (though these trends have much deeper roots), and the institutional expression of both.
