Disagreement among historians regarding the reliability and interpretation of evidence is a normal part of the process of historical research.  The right to offer new interpretations of old evidence, as well as to seek out and publish new evidence that challenges prevailing views, is indispensable to the profession.  What is "historically recognized" can mean only what the prevailing view is at the time in question.  It may be difficult enough for scholars to stand against that view without having to face the risk that some group favored by it may try to have them investigated and prosecuted on criminal charges.
