Scientific History

“History has now become a science – a cut-and-dried science, if you will, but a science which has made, perhaps, more progress the past half century than any other.”
The Catholic Historical Review, vol. 2, no. 2, 1916[1, p.240]

“What exactly is scientific history? …it is history using the full resources of modern scholarship to carry out its primary task of finding out what happened in the past.”
– W. H. Walsh (1973)[2, p.204]
