Butterfield, a theologian manqué, had been a Methodist lay preacher, and from the late 1940s onwards, had been increasingly inclined to see the hand of God in history. A star in the firmament of immediately post‐war Christian revival – an Anglo‐ American analogue to the ruefully religiose reflections of Meinecke’s German catastrophe – Butterfield had attracted notice in the lectures that were to be published as Christianity and History, in 1949. Throughout these lectures, he accounted for the disasters of the Second World War, as well as for the defeat of Nazism, by an appeal to Providence; this did not appeal to the secular Trevor‐Roper, who wrote to Bernard Berenson dismissively of Butterfield’s ‘series of lectures of darkest mysticism’ (Trevor‐ Roper, 2006: 35–6).
Rantzau’s essay, which originally appeared in 1950 in the periodical Die Sammlung, was an extended critique of a conservative German historian, Gerhard Ritter, conducted alongside a defence of the perspectives opened up by Meinecke in Die deutsche Katastrophe. Condemning Ranke and Hegel as state‐ worshippers, Machiavellians in foreign policy, and domestic despots, von Rantzau invoked the Meinecke who had celebrated cosmopolitanism (albeit from a nationalist perspective) in his 1907 study Weltbürgertum und Nationalstaat, rather than the elderly hierophant of historicism.
