Fakten und Fiktionen

In the last centuries, the question of literary orchestration of historic material increasingly became a focal point of debate within the historical science as much as the study of literature. Since the 1970s, the paradigm shift of the „linguistic turn“ argues the term „reality“ as a linguistic construct and represented phenomena, leading to the revision of the term „history“. Not least since Hayden White´s theory of „history as a literary piece of art“ historiography and literature appear in a stress field of both, actual cognition and complete isolation. This Thesis takes on this ongoing discussion about fictional versus historical texts, while schematizing historic Arminius-receptions of different eras and genres.
