This work aims to analyze the historiography production of English Historical Review from issues placed of history of historiography regarding the debate of establishment the historical thinking as scientific knowledge. We want to understand how some historians of the journal of the late nineteenth periodical, still at Victorian age, make one conception of scientific history in synchrony with the professionalization of history. Joining some concepts central to the history of ideas, such as historicism, we believe that the study may indicate new contributions to current theoretical and methodological discussions from the survey of the major texts and locating debates hitherto unknown. The English Historical Review is the result of the development of historical studies in the country and reflected the heterogeneity of the nineteenth century historiography, with its various historical schools. These reflections are rarely referenced the historiography of the nineteenth century, because they consider so misleading and pejorative that it was on the whole positivist, a-theoretical, traditional and political. The approach of the texts was made here considering the context of professionalization and dialogue between European production for the period and the English tradition. One of our references is continuity in respect the guiding question of history, heritage of a Whig historiography. The english historiography of the late nineteenth and early twentieth century reveals issues that do not allow us to clearly demarcate a break in paradigm, for example, or to establish models of professionalization and historical scientificization in European countries.
