Abstract

Grand narratives tell a history with a central theme or leitmotif. They offer one way to explain important transformations that happened during a certain period. A grand narrative organises all the details of a historical process into a more or less coherent story. The grand narratives presented here attempt to grasp how the premodern economy turned into a modern one. Since they all focus on a specific aspect of the economic development, none of them encompasses everything that happened in the European economy from c. 1300 to 1600. Rather, they work as guard rails for research in premodern economic history: They shape the interest that historians take in economic history.
