Questions for Discussion
- What are the implications of this ostensible “world” chronicle, only actually recording history in Northwest Europe?
- What roles do women play in this text?
- Why is this formatted as a scroll rather than a codex?
- How might this Chronique have been used by its fifteenth-century readers?
