Abstract: The Latin chronicle written by Bishop Vincentius of Cracow at the turn of the twelfth and thirteenth centuries is a key source to the history of Poland and influenced centuries of history writing. The chronicle is a masterpiece of the twelfth-century renaissance, and draws heavily on the heritage of antiquity. Throughout the text, Vincentius reveals himself to be a master of allegory and historical metaphor, through which he builds the narrative of history of his people as well as offers a commentary on human behaviour, God's law, and human fate.

Vicentius likens himself to a dwarf on whose shoulders his dynatiic sponsor placed the burden of Atlas. Vincentius' work demonstrates his pride in the Poles bieng an integral part of universal human history. Through the literary means of the chronicle, Vincentius, drawing on his education and erudition which was firmly placed in the intellectual world of western Europe in the twelfth century, gives meaning to the achievements of the Poles.

This article explores the life of Vincentius and provides an analysis of the Polish clergyman's writings aiming at outlining his construct of a history of the Poles, which emphasised law and dynastic heritage.

Chronica Polonorum (disambiguation)

This volume presents an in-depth analysis of the Chronica Polonorum, one of the greatest works of the twelfth-century renaissance which profoundly influenced history writing in Central Europe. Educated in Paris and Bologna, he was the first canonically elected bishop of Cracow and a participant of the Fourth Lateran Council. The historical evidence it presents illuminates the socio-cultural interaction between Poland and the West during the period. This book deals with several subjects which have increasingly gained in prominence in English-language scholarship in recent years, such as the development of political culture, the diffusion and growth of ideas, the Christianization of the peripheral regions of Europe, and the interaction between cultural, political, and economic changes.
