Chronological history

Title(s):

  • Ἱστορία χρονική
    (Historia chronikē, Chronological history)
  • Ἱστορία χρονική ἀπὸ Ἀδαμ
    (Historia chronikē apo Adam, Chronological history from Adam)
  • Ἔκθεσις περὶ χρόνων καὶ κτίσεως κόσμου
    (Ekthesis peri chronōn kai ktiseōs kosmou, Exposition about times and the creation of the world)
Period covered:
Adam-Justinian or 610
Language:
Greek
State of Preservation:
Fragmentary
Genre:
  • Secular history (chronological history)
Remarks:
Mariev (2008) sees John as a historian of the sixth century; Roberto (2005) dates him in the early seventh century. The former hypothesis necessitates the idea of an updated version of the work dated to the seventh century. Neither of their editions is satisfactory.
