ДЖОФФРИ КИТИНГ И ПРЕДСТАВЛЕНИЯ ОБ ИСТОРИИ “ГОСУДАРСТВА” - ТРАДИЦИОННЫЕ ФОРМЫ И НОВЫЕ КОНТЕКСТЫ

Диалог со временем. 2018. № 65. С. 107-125.
Левин Ф. Е.

The author analyses the historical narrative, Foras Feasa ar Éirinn, written by Geoffrey Keating (1580–1644), as reflection on British composite project in Ireland. The article explores the image of authority which was constructed not only on the basis of copied or retold material from the medieval Irish sources, but also on the basis of perceptions of the period Keating lived in. Therefore, Keating's narrative comprised concepts of authority, which the author acquired from preceding Irish tradition and which he left intact, and anachronisms, the elements of the reality surrounding the Irish history-writer, which were projected on the Irish past.
