This is the first volume of a two-volume edition of the Chronicle by Symeon Logothetes (10th cent.), one of the main sources for Middle Byzantine history. The text is presented here in a critical edition for the first time. In the introduction, allmanuscripts are described, and the relationships between them analysed. Wahlgren's findings differ in significant points from the (partial) analyses of earlier researchers. The edition has to be based mainly on the 11th cent. manuscript because the Slav versions of the Chronicle are of onlylittle value for the reconstruction of the original text. Navigation through the volume is facilitated by comprehensive indexes. A projected second volume will provide an edition of versions and continuations of the Chronicle.

MEDIA REVIEWS

"Dem Buch von Wahlgren ist es zu verdanken, dass die Arbeit an der Chronik des Symeon Magister et Logotheta nunmehr auf einer soliden Textgrundlage erfolgen kann, was neue Perspektiven fur die Byzantinistik eroeffnet. Fur seine Arbeit gebuhrt dem Editor hoechste Anerkennung."
Dariusz Brodka in: www.sehepunkte.de7/2007

"Wahlgren's exemplary Symeonis Magistri at Logothetae Chronicon, then, comes at a moment when the intersection of Philology and History seems poised to produce exciting opportunities for research and to shed fresh light on our picture of Late Antiquity."
Thomas M. Banchich in: BMCR 2007.09.34 http: //ccat.sas.upenn.edu/bmcr/2007/2007-09-34.html
