    schema:description ""The Chronicle of Morea, which tells the story of the Fourth Crusade, and of the formation and government of the Principality by the ambitious but enlightened Villehardouin dynasty, constitutes our most important narrative source for the period. It is a source that has attracted a great deal of controversy, primarily because of its survival in multiple versions in four different languages: Greek, French, Spanish, and Italian. Teresa Shawcross approaches the Chronicle as an example of medieval historiography- not merley a repository of 'facts', but a consciously devised piece of writing reliant upon a series of textual strategies. All the surviving versions and manuscripts are here examined in depth for the first time, and an exploration undertaken of the literary and ideological contexts responsible for the work's original inception, and subsequent evolution and revision. We are given a fascinating insight into the disctinctive society of the crusader lands, as well as into the complexities of that society's interaction with the outside world."--Back cover."@en ;
