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.

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...
