Arius Raposas (born January 1, 1996) is a Filipino historian and writer. Known for his appearances in national and international media to share historical knowledge and cultivate appreciation of the discipline, Raposas has been one of the nation's agents of public history. Besides having academic works on history, political science, and public administration, among other disciplines, he maintains a history website known as the Filipino Historian.

Early life and education

Raposas has been involved in public service since at least 2003. He has served in various volunteering and leadership activities, many of which are school-related or church-related. He has also served in the Boy Scouts of the Philippines.

He obtained his bachelor's degree in history from the University of the Philippines, graduating as magna cum laude. In recognition of his academic achievements, he was inducted as a member of Pi Gamma Mu and the Honor Society of Phi Kappa Phi. He also took a master's degree in public administration from the same university.


Raposas began the Filipino Historian as an open access history website in 2012, consistently ranking as one of the top blogging websites in the Philippines.[1] The website claims to have reached 10 million people as of 2021.

Meanwhile, his media appearances began in 2014, where the local media has popularized the moniker of him being the nation's youngest historian due to his relatively young age. Among the networks he has been featured in include Arte TV, GMA Network (company), TV5 (Philippine TV network), ABS-CBN, and UNTV (Philippines).[2][3][4][5][6][7] Raposas, however, does not nurture the said claim conferred by local media considering his academic background. A master's degree or a doctorate is usually required for a historian to be recognized in his or her field.[8]

Raposas is also one of the editorial board members of Wikiversity of Humanities, a position he has served since 2019.[9]
