This article is about the different views of German and European historians on the Late Middle Ages. Analysing a few important studies the author points out central issues and main developments in German historical research since 1919, with an emphasis on the theme of the "crisis of the Late Middle Ages". The latest publication of German medievalists (published in 2006) almost completely ignores the signs of crisis in agrarian economy and rural society all over Late Medieval Europe. For leading international scholars, however, themes like population losses, epidemics and the Great Plague, peasants' revolts and the economic crisis in the Late Middle Ages play an important role and are intensively discussed in international studies.
