Summary/Abstract: There can be no doubt that the Hungarian Revolution of 1848 and the subsequent war of independence belong to the events that significantly contributed to the development of modern Hungarian historical consciousness. Decisive alternatives emerged during this critical period: national sovereignty versus development under foreign power, or the cultivation of friendly compromises reached through negotiations versus violent confrontations. The patterns of thinking associated with these choices also imposed their influence on the interpretations of other recent historic turning points such as the events of 1956. For a better understanding of what happened to Hungary during the years 1848 - 1849 we need to divide the events into three distinct but interconnected spheres.
