Chapter Summary

This chapter provides an overview of the sources and their relation to the text of the Cronaca. It deals with the three chronological sections into which the Cronaca fairly neatly divides. The first, treating pagan antiquity, comprises chapters 1-32 (33B); two chronologically misplaced chapters, on the Cumaean sibyl, also belong to this section [38 (39B)-39 (40B)]. The second section treats Naples' early-Christian and early-medieval history in chapters 33 (34B)-55 (57B), excepting the two chapters on the Cumaean sibyl. The third can be described as a narration of Naples' royal era, since it deals principally with the reigns of the successive kings of southern Italy from the Normans to the accession of Joanna I (chapter 56 [58B] to the end), though its first few chapters describe the various lords of southern Italy before the arrival of the Normans and the careers of early Normans before they held the status of king.
