El Chronicon mundi es una de las obras de Lucas de Tuy, quien fue primero canónigo de San Isidoro de León y posteriormente obispo de Tuy, desde 1239 hasta 1249, por lo que es conocido también como el Tudense. Esta crónica, de inspiración isidoriana, abarca desde los orígenes del mundo hasta la conquista de Córdoba en 1236 por el rey Fernando III. Comienza enfocando la historia con una perspectiva universal, inspirándose en San Isidoro, pero se convierte luego en una crónica nacional.

La única edición existente de la obra era la publicada por Mariana en 1608. La edición que se publica ahora a cargo de Emma Falque, es la primera edición crítica, realizada atendiendo al testimonio de los diez y nueve manuscritos conservados.

Review

“Falque's edition is a worthy companion to the other works of twelfth- and thirteenth-century Latin historical writing from the Iberian peninsula recently available in editions published in the Corpus Christianorum, including her own editions of the 'Historia Compostellana' and the 'Historia Roderici'.”

(Lucy K. Pick, in: The Journal of Medieval Latin, 14, 2004, p. 237)

“Falque’s edition is a worthy companion to the other works of twelfth- and thirteenth-century Latin historical writing from the Iberian peninsula recently available in editions published in the Corpus Christianorum.”

(L. K. Pick, in: The Journal of Medieval Latin, 14, 2004, p. 239)

“Emma Falque has provided a model edition of a long and difficult text … This is a landmark in the history of scholarship on the historiography of medieval Spain.”

(Francisco J. Fernández, in: The Journal of Ecclesiastical History, 56, 2005, p. 142)

“Lucas of Túy’s Chronicon mundi has long been in need of a new edition to replace the early-seventeenth-century version so long in use (…). Emma Falque offers not only a new text but also an extensive introduction appropriate to a work holding such a critical place in Iberian historiography. (…) The new version of his Chronicon is a most welcome addition to the Brepols series of editions.”

(James F. Powers, in: Speculum, 80, 2005, p. 629)

«Nous ne pouvons que nous réjouir de la parution de cette édition critique du Chronicon Mundi (...) puisque la seule édition disponible jusqu'à présent était celle du père Mariana, sans appareil critique et dont la publication remonte à 1609, ce qui la rend presque introuvable.»

(A.M.S.A. Rodriquez, in: Revue d'Histoire Ecclésiastique, 3, 405, 2005, p. 1169-1170)

 

"Falque is to be thanked and congratulated for bringing both Lucas and his Cronicon Mundi the attention they both deserve." ( S. Barton in English Historical Review, cxxii. 495 (Feb. 2007), p. 155-157)
