Chapter Summary

The influence exerted by the Cronaca di Partenope in the centuries following its composition has been acknowledged by the principal scholars who have studied the work. Building upon research conducted by Bartolomeo Capasso, he also identified later works that borrowed from or incorporated significant segments of the Cronaca di Partenope. To trace in detail all the permutations of and borrowings from the Cronaca di Partenope through the seventeenth century is beyond the scope of the present chapter. The different cultural and historical circumstances of those later writers, the adaptations they made to the Cronaca, and the ways those adaptations reflect contemporary values and interests would ideally be taken into consideration. The later fourteenth century has left us atmost one survivingmanuscript copy of the Cronaca (PL), but other indices demonstrate an influence far outstripping this survival rate.

Keywords:Bartolomeo Capasso; Cronaca di Partenope; fourteenth century; seventeenth century
