Abstract: Throughout the Historical Miniatures, Strindberg has cleverly woven themes and motifs which express his personal view of human history. This view, summarized by Harry Palmblad, is that human history proceeds in a series of cycles and that its development is gradual, cumulative, and continuing. Nothing can come into existence on its own, not even Christ's truths, as Pope Sylvester II in "The Thousand-Year Empire" explains to young Emperor otto III by quoting from St. Augustine. 'The thing we now call Christianity was already there amidst the Ancients ...Christ·s truths don't deviate from the old, are rather the same, only more completely developed.' Strindberg had applied Darwin's theory of the evolution of species to history and religion.
