Chapter Summary

Guillaume de Nangis, archivist at the Abbey of Saint-Denis, completed his Latin world chronicle in 1297, shortly before his death. Only a few years later, an anonymous monk from the same abbey translated the Chronicon into French. However, by excluding numerous historical events not directly related to the history of France and its kings, the translator converted it at the same time to a dynastic chronicle, the Chronique amplifiée des rois de France (CRF). In the 1380s, Jean de Noyal, abbot of Saint-Vincent de Laon in Picardy integrated the French translation of the Chronicon into his Miroir historial. The abbot combines the borrowings from the CRF with material from sources describing events which occurred abroad. Thus, he created a world-chronicle whose primary source is a dynastic chronicle. At a first glance, the French translation and the Miroir historial seem very close to the Latin text. A comparative reading reveals however that both the translator and Jean de Noyal have made some recurrent lexical and syntactic changes that are not justified by mere linguistic differences between Latin and French. In this article I propose to investigate these lexical and syntactic rewritings.
