Jan Dlugosz's Chronicles

14 APRIL

by Huncwot (Poland) Arek Romanski

The aim of the project was to present Jan Dlugosz’s magnum opus – Annals, or Chronicles of the Famous Kingdom of Poland – as one of the pre-eminent historiographical works in late medieval Europe. The chronicle deserved closer study because of the amount of information it offers, as well as its prominent role in the formation of scholarly views on the medieval history of Central and Eastern Europe. The features of the website have been so designed as to allow for the simultaneous display and examination of any two print or manuscript sources. The printed texts are fully searchable. To facilitate studying the text in the manuscripts, the facsimiles have been tagged according to the years discussed, in agreement with the annalistic structure of the work.
