Since the end of the nineteenth century, Jules Michelet has had the status of France’s canonical national historian. For French historians he remains a classic author, even though his work can no longer be considered exemplary. Camille Creyghton discusses Michelet’s canonization in the French collective memory and his afterlife in French historiography and political culture. She investigates the role played by national history in French political culture since the nineteenth century, exploring the dynamics between professional history writing and the political uses of history.
