This work is a translation of the Chronicle of the 12th-century Armenian historian, Matthew of Edessa. The Chronicle, which covers the period from 952 A.D. to 1162 A.D., principally deals with events taking place in Armenia and upper Mesopotamia, and also presents many references to major events in the Byzantine Empire and those areas conquered by the early crusaders. The author's aim is to explicate those parts of the Chronicle which are not clear; to elucidate the text by means of historical, geographical, bibliographical, chronological, and other references; and to compare and contrast the narration of events in the Chronicle with that of other historians, both contemporary and non-contemporary. The introduction discusses the historian's life, work, and attitudes. Co-published with the National Association for Armenian Studies and Research.
