Abstract | Full Text

The present article deals with the story of the Trojan war in three Byzantine world-chronicles, by John Malalas (6th c.), John Kedrenos (11th c.) and Constantine Manasses (12th c.). The narratives under examination offer an illustration of the complexity of textual transmission of chronographical material; they also show how each chronicler, while borrowing his information from previous chronicles, renews this traditional material, by selecting and organizing elements in a different way: each Trojan chapter owes its peculiarity to this reworking process.
