World celebrates Historian’s Day
Today, the Historian’s Day is celebrated around the world. On this day, congratulations are accepted by all those specialists whose activities are somehow related to the study and popularization of history. A historian is a specialist who is engaged in the study of documents and objects related to the past of mankind. As a rule, historians study certain areas of this science.
Herodotus, who lived in the 5th century BC, is considered the founder of the history science. He is also the author of the first historical work The Histories. In Greek mythology, Clio is the muse of history.
In the Middle Ages, scientific historians created chronicles in which special attention was paid to the glorification of the rulers and fathers of the church.
Nowadays, history is created by the efforts of historians, working in educational institutions and scientific institutes.
The team of Vestnik Kavkaza congratulates all historians on their professional holiday, especially teachers, students and post-graduate students of our partner, the Faculty of History of Moscow State University.
