AbstractHistory and the written word are powerful tools of historical change. By writing about social order, authors define its borders. In the last decades, research has stressed this aspect with regard not only to normative, but also to historiographic writing: in (re)writing the past, history negotiates what is ought to be. This issue becomes especially urgent when social groups are convinced of being threatened. In such situations borders and order of societies are discussed and shifted. This panel examines the framing of the past and with it ideals of the present in historiographical texts from the Carolingian Age.
