Paris, Matthew

 

Died in 1259(?). English chronicler; monk of St. Albans Monastery (from 1217).

Matthew’s main work was the Chronica majora. The first part was a somewhat revised and enlarged version of the chronicle of his predecessor Roger Wendover. The second part, written by Matthew himself, covers the events of 1235 to 1259 and is an important source on the history of England during the period. He illustrated his chronicle with maps and miniatures.

WORKS

Chronica majora, vols. 1-7. Edited by H. R. Luard. London, 1872-84.
