The Historiography of Eastern Visayas Revisited

Rolando O. Borrinaga

Discipline: History, Philippine History



This paper presents an inventory and analysis of local history articles that appeared in the Leyte-Samar Studies, the Graduate School publication of the defunct Divine Word University of Tacloban, through its 25-year life-span from 1967 to 1992.

Complementing the inventory would be a survey of the historiography of Eastern Visayas in English that appeared in other publications (whether journals or books) prior to, during, and after the appearance of Leyte-Samar Studies. 

The outcome of both efforts could hopefully help identify the gaps that still need to be filled in the study of the local history of Eastern Visayas.
