Abstract and Keywords

The concept of medievalism contains within it an element of the imaginative, and many early nineteenth-century musical and artistic works that draw on the medievalist aesthetic have a fanciful, storytelling quality. The early nineteenth century, however, was also a time in which music and music-related scholarship and criticism on the era that is now considered medieval developed at an accelerating pace. This essay will consider the writings of three scholar-critics who had different approaches and goals in their thinking about this period: Raphael Georg Kiesewetter, Anton Justus Thibaut, and Friedrich Heinrich von der Hagen.

Keywords: medievalism, historiography, Raphael Georg Kiesewetter, Anton Justus Thibaut, Friedrich Heinrich von der Hagen
