Cover of book titled Vera Lex Historiae? Constructions of Truth in Medieval Historical Narrative

Vera Lex Historiae? comprises contributions that reveal the variety of evental strategies by which historical truth was constructed in late antiquity and the earlier Middle Ages, and the range of procedures by which such narratives were first established as being historical and then as “true” histories. This is not only a matter of narrative strategies, but also of habitus — ways of living and acting in the world that are deeply imbricated with the commemoration and re-enactment of the past by communities and by individuals. Catalin Taranu is a literary-historical scholar working on the vernacular poems and cultures of early medieval England and Francia. Michael J. Kelly teaches history, critical theory, and the philosophy of history at Binghamton University, SUNY and is the Director of the research collective Networks and Neighbours and the book series Gracchi Books.
