 Biography of Theodor Mommsen   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-21)
Mommsen saw himself, however, primarily as a jurist and philologist, whose task it was to bring to light the objective testimony of classical antiquity and to ‘put these archives of the past into order’.
In addition to his many scientific works, Mommsen gained a seat in the Prussian parliament from 1863-66 for the ‘Fortschritt’ (‘Progressive’) Party, then from 1873-79 for the ‘Nationalliberalen’ (National Liberals’;), and then from 1881-84 he was a representative in the Reichstag for the ‘Sexession’, a group which had broken away from the National Liberals.
Mommsen’s political opinions which he gave with polemic sharpness were increasingly well received from the late 1870s (as for example with Bismarck after he broke away from the Liberals and during the dispute about anti-Semitism in Berlin) on the basis of his reputation as a world famous researcher.

 Rebenich: on Heuss: Theodor Mommsen und das 19. Jahrhundert
It is due to Heuss that all attempts made by contemporaries and biographers to marginalize or minimize Mommsen's political statements (and outbursts) are cogently rejected once for all[7].
Mommsen is thus represented as paradigm, indeed as perfect personification of the German bourgeoisie in the 19th century, tormented with deep political frustrations and combining firm belief in scientific progress and historical cognition with persevering zest for work and assiduous sense of duty.
Heuss surely underestimated the importance of Mommsen's unpublished correspondence for reconstructing the latter's scholarly and especially political acitivities[9], as for instance Mommsen's exchange of letters with the theologian Adolf Harnack proves[10].

The historian Wolfgang Mommsen, who has died of a heart attack while bathing in the Baltic Sea at the age of 73, was a leading member of a remarkable generation of liberal and left-leaning historians who championed a more critical attitude to the German past from the 1960s onwards.
