University Press of Florida

Racial thought in the nineteenth century in the West was preoccupied with uncovering rules and methods to explain racial difference. By looking at 19th-century writing on the medieval period, the relation between medieval people and modern concepts of race becomes evident. This chapter examines the history of theories of race, which explain the movement between categories of different people. The chapter further examines the history of medieval studies in the nineteenth century, which touches on nationalistic traits of the Middle Ages. It also summarizes the historical development of race theory as well as problems arising from the history of race theory.

Keywords:   racial thought, race theories, medieval studies, nationalistic, Middle Ages
