Summary
"The Greek version of Eusebius' great church chronicle ends in 324 A.D.; St. Jerome translated it into Latin, and continued it down to the year 389 A.D.; Matthaeus Palmerius and Prosper Britannicus, to the year 1448, ending with the report of Francesco Sforza's victory in the battle of Caravaggio. In this edition, the chronicle is continued to the year 1481. The Chronicle, written in imitation and continuation of the earlier work of Sextus Julius Africanus, was a comparative chronology of all known peoples." It was divided into two books; the first, extending to 329, establishes, by comparing the opinions of ancient historians, the exact chronology of every people, and the second presents the concordance of all the ancient chronological systems, with the most important events noted in the margins. "In these dry chronological tables history for the first time is considered as a single entity and grouped around a unique center," the Old Testament; from J.W. Thompson, A history of historical writing (New York: Macmillan, 1942), pages 128-129.
