ANONYMOUS VALESIANUS

ANONYMOUS VALESIANUS Name indicating two Latin fragments of different origin and time, published by H. de Valois hence the name in an appendix to his edition of Ammianus Marcellinus in 1636; also called the Excerpta Valesiana. The two fragments were published together only because of Constantinople they were in the same MS. The first Pars prior was edited by Mommsen with the title Origo Constantini imperatoris ch. 1-35 and the other Chronica Theodoriciana Pars posterior ch. 36-96. The Origo Constantini is a brief biography of the emperor from 305 to 337, written some decades after his death and before 390. The author uses good sources; Orosius also drew on them. The author ignores the political and religious reforms of the first Christian emperor, instead narrating the events of war, esp. during the first period 305324. References to Christianity are interpolated, taken from Orosius’s Historia contra paganos. The Pars posterior was written ca. 550 by an anti-Arian Catholic who was nonetheless sympathetic to the Arian king, who promoted peace and was benevolent toward Catholics. Written in a very poor Latin, it covers the period from 474527, treating esp. of King Theodoric and events in Italy. MGH, AA 9, Chronica Minora I, 7-11 Pars Prior; 306-328 Pars Posterior.
