Daniel Gustav Cramer
Untitled (Eusebius - Jerome)

71 x 61 cm
Edition of 5 + 2 AP

The oldest non-biblical Latin manuscript in Great Britain, a manuscript of St. Jerome’s Latin translation and adaptation of the Greek chronicle of Eusebius, bishop of Ceasarea, describing the history of mankind starting with Adam and Eve until A.D. 378, with supplements added by other writers, the final appendage in A.D. 442. The chronicle constructs a time line comparing parallel historical records from the first year of Abraham to the twentieth of Jerome’s own emperor Constantine (A.D. 326), linking the Macedonian king-lists and Greek Olympiads with the regnal years of Roman emperors.
