The Chronicles of Rome

£49.99

Product description

Hardback in very good condition. Some very minor shelf-wear but otherwise an extremely tidy copy. Gilt spine, very tight binding and interior is nice and bright.

The two Middle English chronicles presented here record the lives of the popes and emperors of Rome; they are the only surviving Middle English texts devoted principally to such material. The first is the fourteenth-century Chronicle of Popes and Emperors, a translation and abbreviation of Martinus Polonus's thirteenth-century Chronicon Pontificum et Imperatorum; it served as a reference book for clerics and religious institutions, providing some 300 biographies. The second is theLollard Chronicle, a selection of popes' and emperors' biographies aiming to discredit the papacy and justify the sovereignty of secular authorities in accordance with Wycliffite doctrines; it provides vital evidence for a Lollard reading of history. This volume is the first in a new series, aiming to publish previously unedited Middle English chronicles of historical or literary importance.Professor DAN EMBREEteaches at Mississippi State University.
