Description/Abstract

This article discusses Leopold von Ranke, the seminal historian, specifically his times in Venice, where he developed his thorough objective historical method, under the influence of Venetian ambassadorial writings, or relazioni. He was also in the perfect situation to amass an impressive manuscript and rare book collection, as the Republic was falling at the time, and entire library and art collections were being liquidated. His vast collection is now part of the Syracuse University's Special Collections.
