Chapter 3, ‘Institutionalization and Professionalization’, examines the institutional setting of the five scholars' activities and investigates their role in the professionalization and institutionalization of the discipline. It explores the role of patriotic and scholarly societies in the organization of national culture and the historians' contribution to those activities. This is followed by the study of the universities' limited role in the promotion of historical studies in the region. Thereafter, the historians' contribution to the creation of periodicals and source collections is discussed and the claim is put forward that such ventures were instrumental in the formation of a unified national culture and language. Finally, examples of censorial intervention in their work are analysed, alongside the strategies which they devised in order to alleviate the impact of censorship.

Keywords:   learned societies—East‐Central Europe, nineteenth‐century universities, academic journals, edition of sources, censorship—nineteenth century, professionalization, institutionalization
