Bloch, Marc

(1886-1944)
   historian
   Born in lyon, the son of Gustave Bloch, the noted professor of Roman history at the sorbonne, Marc Bloch, along with lucien febvre, compiled the Annales d'histoire économique et sociale (1929). Appointed professor of history at the Sorbonne in 1936, Bloch joined the resistance in 1942 and was soon captured and killed by the Germans. His writings (Les Rois thaumaturges, 1924; Les Caractères originaux de l'histoire rurale française, 1931; La Société féodale, 1939-40) revitalized medieval historiography and considerably enlarged the general field of historical research. His posthumous work, Apologie pour l'histoire (1952), in which he defined his idea of history, led to his becoming one of the most important historians of his generation.
