Abstract

Two Byzantine chronicles composed in verse are discussed in the article: the Synopsis Chronike by Constantine Manasses (mid-12th century) and the Chronicle of Ephraim of Ainos (early 14th century). The two chronicles belong in different centuries and to different cultural contexts; they are both written in verse, but not in the same metre and not with the same focus, nor in the same style. In the present article, the chronicles by Manasses and Ephraim are analysed and compared as regards verse form and stylistic level. In addition, the significance of using verse as a vehicle for narrating history is discussed, with particular focus on the implications —literary, historical, ideological— such a choice of form may have entailed in Byzantium.
