History as literature German World Chronicles of the Thirteenth Century in Verse, Excerpts from: Rudolf von Ems, Weltchronik, The Christherre-Chronik, Jans Enikel, Weltchronik DUNPHY, R. Graeme & EMS), Rudolf (von & ENIKEL, Jans

This volume presents excerpts and translations of three thirteenth-century South German verse chronicles: Rudolf von Ems's Weltchronik, the anonymous Christherre-Chronik, and the Weltchronik of Jans Enikel. The three works are close in language, in date, and in conception, yet they also differ significantly, representing the perspectives of three distinct sections of medieval society: courtly, monastic, and urban. The excerpts have been chosen from the beginning of Rudolf's chronicle, the middle of the Christherre-Chronik and the end of Enikel, so that taken together they give something of an impression of the chroniclers' arrangement of material in a continuum from the beginning to the end of history.-from the Introduction.
