Haredi Counter History: Some Theoretical and Methodological Aspects

By Nahum Karlinsky

Association for Jewish Studies (AJS), Spring 2008

The author discusses Haredi (ultra-Orthodox) historiographical literature, in which modern historical writing techniques are coupled with an anti-modern value system and juxtaposed with hagiographical miracle tales to create multifaceted works containing both scholarship and fundamentalism. The author examines the 1902 work "Beit Rabi" by Hayyim Meir Heilman to illustrate his understanding of the genre.
