This historic book may have numerous typos and missing text.
Purchasers can usually download a free scanned copy of the original
book (without typos) from the publisher. Not indexed. Not
illustrated. 1907 edition. Excerpt: ... Appendix A. NOTES ON THE
CHAPTERS. Chapter I. 1. These lacunae existed already in the 16th
century, when a tran script of the Chronicle was made. 2. For
growth of luxury see Murat. ix, pp. 128 ff and 669: Ben. I in. vol.
T, p. 150: for slaves see Biagi, p. 333, and Wadding, 1274, p. 423.
3. Ps. xliv, 3. I have thought it best to give nearly all the Bible
quotations from the Douai version, as more exactly representing the
Vulgate, which Salimbene of course always quotes. The page
references are to the text of Salimbene in Hon. Germ. Hist.
Scriptt., t. xxxii. In some cases, however, I have not been able to
secure in time the paged sheets of this standard edition; in such
cases I give the year under which Salimbene records the matter,
together with the page of the Parma edition. Thus the reference
(1250-237) will enable the reader to verify my quotation on p. 237
in the Parma edition, or under the year 1250 in either edition.
Whether the whole of the Chronicle was written for Sister Agnes has
been questioned by Father Michael, who however gives no very cogent
reasons for his doubt. Certainly Salimbene's freedom of speech
supplies no proof that it was not written for a nun: see chap. iii,
note 7. 4. Michael, p. 2. 5. e.g. The early history of the city and
diocese of Tournai, in the Corpus Chronicorum Flandrice, 1841, t.
ii, pp. 480 following. Similarly, Abbot Guibert of Nogent tells how
he has been pestered to deliver imaginary panegyrics on unknown
saints: and his words imply that such requests were frequent and
difficult to refuse. (Migne. Pat. Lat., vol. clvi, p. 624). When,
in 1282, a general chapter of the Franciscans was held at
Strassburg, "the Minister-General enjoined Brother Philip, minister
of Tuscany, to enquire diligently, if...
