Product Description

Villani’s Chronicle is a history of Florence, Italy, written by a citizen of that city, who was alive at the time of Dante. This is one of the first histories we have preserved that was written in Italy after the fall of the Roman Empire. Rose Selfe has translated the parts that would be of most interest to students of Dante, and includes references in the margins to the sections in Dante’s works which relate to that portion noted of the history.
