Hardcover, 292 pp. The priorities of medieval chroniclers and historians were not those of the modern historian; nor was the way that they gathered, arranged, and presented evidence, says Christopher Given-Wilson, a leading authority on medieval English historical writing. Yet if we understand how they approached their task, and their assumption of God's immanence in the world, much that they wrote becomes clear. Here he examines how medieval writers such as Ranulf Higden and Adam Usk-men of high intelligence-treated chronology and geography, politics and warfare, heroes and villains. Taken in the context of their epoch, their interpretation of events reveals much of what actually happened. New in new dustjacket.
