This research on historiography in the “Magazine of the Brazilian Historical and Geographical Institute” (“Institutito Histórico e Geográfico Brasileiro”, IHGB) in the 19th century aimed to analyze from a time frame between 1839 and 1870 having as a problem the main characteristics about the formation of a national historical consciousness in the Brazil. It seeks to understand the values of the country's history, used by the Empire through its representatives-historians who sought to ensure for themselves the national values of this culture in the process of construction. This would be characterized in a way of making a national history, which would emerge with its concepts and conceptions the values of its political culture in the formation of scientific historical knowledge, which could ensure for its present and future a past built from a conception moral about Brazilians. The scientific values of this historical politics, linked to a conception of its political time, were conditioned to search for the moral roots of its culture. What we will notice here is that this knowledge designed the construction of a national identity for Brazil in the 19th century. Which was linked to a project that would seek to consolidate for the nation a historiographical tradition that was converted by the logic of national memory. This type of historiographic project was not limited to seeking to consolidate a tradition from a static past, immobilized by its own inefficiency, but, above all, sought to consolidate it in the sense of building a “live” tradition for its future.
