Doan Dani

Abstract


The present article examines the influence of the ideological approaches as Marxism and Nationalism in the Albanian historical school of Middle Age after the Second World War. This two perspectives of historical interpretation have generated some specific contradictions, particularly about Scanderbeg’s authority, the Albanian’s national hero: it seems to be both ‘feudal lord’ and ‘peasant patriot’ who fight for principles as Nation and Europe, very abstract in fifteenth century. The paper traces the construction of Scanderbeg’s authority by some of the most important Albanian historians.
