The aim of this article is to justify the theological structure that Hannah Arendt and Walter Benjamin grant to history from the use of memory and hermeneutical motivation. The article explores the parallelism between the two authors in three stages: the hermeneutic crisis of the twentieth century, the revision and deconstruction of progress and the modern concept of history, and the recovery of narrative as an exercise in historical meaning. The article shows that in both authors the theological structure converts the narrative in an exercise of salvation that, nevertheless, does not point to a transcendent dimension.
