The Ecclesiastical History of Orderic Vitalis has been called 'the greatest of all medieval chronicles'. Written in Normandy between 1114 and 1141, it is a detailed history of the Norman people and their conquests, full of vivid, often penetrating portraits of the lives and characters of kings and queens, lords and bishops, simple knights, and humble villagers. The chronicle gives a unique, authentic picture of feudal society during a period of rapid change in church and state which saw the emergence of the Anglo-Norman realm, the spread of new forms of monasticism, and the launching of the Crusades. Published in 1968, volume II of Marjorie Chibnall's six-volume edition of the Ecclesiastical History is now available for the first time in paperback. 'a superbly edited Latin text and a unique English translation of the work of a major historian' American Historical Review 'Mrs Chibnall is giving us ...her edition of a classical medieval text which will itself become a classic of medieval scholarship.'
