Transcript 38 Russia's Gift to the World others have done a great deal of work of the first quality on the Napoleonic period and the national war of 1812. What has been done by Russian historians on subjects external to Russia, where they can work with freedom, shows them to be capable of the greatest achievements. Byzantine history is intimately connected with that of Russia, and the Russians have made it peculiarly their own. In the field of Byzantine history, philology, archaeology, and art Russians have done so much work of capital importance that no serious student of these subjects can afford to be unacquainted with Russian. The leading Byzantinists, of Petrograd or Moscow, Kiev or Kazan, are thoroughly sound scholars, accurate and acute, trained in modern methods, and masters of that difficult but indispensable art, the investigation and appraisement of the sources from which our knowledge of past history is ultimately derived.

To English historical studies, Russians, and one Russian in particular, have made contributions of unexampled value. Vinogradov has made little less than a revolution in English history. It was he who first inspired F. W. Maitland to begin his historical work. It was he who, by a combination of good luck and genius, identified Bracton's Notebook, one of the most precious documents which have descended to us from our own national past. His long series of studies on the social life of the Middle Ages is the most important and original contribution which any foreigner, not excepting Pauli or Ranke, has made to English history. A pupil of Vinogradov's, Savin, has given us a most important and thorough study of the economic
