Summary:
The Chronicle of Pseudo-Dionysius (or the Zuqnin Chronicle) is an important Syriac historiographical work dating from the end of the eighth century. The work is written from the point of view of a religious dissident, a Monophysite, whose personal experience as a persecuted monk in his native Mesopotamia, as well as his later life in Constantinople, make the History a most interesting and unusual source. Witakowski's translation is clear, the accompanying introduction and notes to the text are concise and helpful. Useful to student and scholar alike, this book merits the attention of every historian of the sixth century.Journal of Ecclesiastical History Publisher description
