The Winchcombe and Coventry Chronicles are the most substantial examples of ‘the breviate world chronicle in annalistic format’—a form of semi-ephemeral historical literature that was ubiquitous in the High Middle Ages—to survive for Anglo-Norman and twelfth-century England. Their importance lies not only in what they have to say about the histories of the houses and regions in which they were produced, but also in their close connection with the Chronica chronicarum of John of Worcester and in what they say about the reception and dissemination of certain theories about the chronology of the World which had originated in eleventh-century Germany. Based in large part on the author/editor’s own discoveries in the manuscript record, this book edits and translates both texts in full for the first time. It includes comprehensive source-critical and historical commentaries, and an extensive introduction explaining their genesis, textual affinities and purpose.
