Andrew Ognev The Chronicles of the Elders Malefisterium. Volume 1. The Ordeal of Freya


The confrontation of two primal elements, Light and Darkness, is a traditional narrative motif. But what if it is no longer possible to fight against the Darkness? What if everything that exists in the world was created from it by the Demiurges? The Darkness wants the world to embrace both life and death. The world is doomed; and however hard we try to prevent its end, it only draws nearer. A Luminary arrives on Earth to keep the balance of the two forces and to prevent both sides from destroying this world. Embodied in a child’s body, he must accomplish his mission.

Elizabeth Lapina Warfare and the Miraculous in the Chronicles of the First Crusade


In Warfare and the Miraculous in the Chronicles of the First Crusade , Elizabeth Lapina examines a variety of these chronicles, written both by participants in the crusade and by those who stayed behind. Her goal is to understand the enterprise from the perspective of its contemporaries and near contemporaries. Lapina analyzes the diversity of ways in which the chroniclers tried to justify the First Crusade as a “holy war,” where physical violence could be not just sinless, but salvific. The book focuses on accounts of miracles reported to have happened in the course of the crusade, especially the miracle of the intervention of saints in the Battle of Antioch. Lapina shows why and how chroniclers used these miracles to provide historical precedent and to reconcile the messiness of history with the conviction that history was ordered by divine will. In doing so, she provides an important glimpse into the intellectual efforts of the chronicles and their authors, illuminating their perspectives toward the concepts of history, salvation, and the East. Warfare and the Miraculous in the Chronicles of the First Crusade demonstrates how these narratives sought to position the crusade as an event in the time line of sacred history. Lapina offers original insights into the effects of the crusade on the Western imaginary as well as how medieval authors thought about and represented history.

Froissart Jean The Selected Chronicles of Froissart


Although he was a poet in the 14th century, French writer Jean Froissart is best known for his historical work «Chronicles.» In the work, he explained the events leading up to the Hundred Years' War, and then detailed the battles, strategies, and key figures for the first fifty years of the war. «Chronicles» provides an excellent glimpse into Renaissance history and politics, as well as providing the opinion of a Frenchman on the war itself. Because it is one man's opinion, historians agree that «Chronicles» is a biased piece of work; it cannot be relied upon to provide a completely accurate and impartial account of the Hundred Years' War. Froissart often interjected negative phrases and commentary about the opposing side, and he often exaggerated the casualty rate of the British soldiers. While he never went so far as to be inaccurate about which side won a particular battle, Froissart would focus on the French's strengths and the British's weaknesses. However, there is no doubt that «Chronicles» is an important piece of historical knowledge. Froissart infuses tales of the battles with vivid scenery and imagery. He engages the reader, making the lengthy battle descriptions interesting to read. Included in this selection are accounts of «The Campaign of Crecy,» «The Battle of Poitiers,» «Wat Tyler's Rebellion,» and «The Battle of Otterburn.»
