Aengus Ward, Ph.D. (1995, Birmingham) is a senior lecturer in Hispanic Studies at the University of Birmingham. He is the author of multiple works on medieval Iberian historiography including critical editions of 3 late medieval chronicles and is the Iberian chronicles editor of the Encyclopedia of the Medieval Chronicle (Brill, 2010).
All those interested in the theory and practice of writing of medieval chronicles and in the history and histioriography of late medieval Iberia in particular.
"...The methodology is meticulously explained, and involves a number of steps, which are marked by chapter-divisions....Chapter Four is most probably that which will be most useful to a wider range of scholars interested in medieval historiography, not just late medieval or Iberian, but in general. It is a valuable and purposeful text in and of itself....It should by now be apparent that I consider this book to be one of the singularly
most important contributions to the study of medieval Iberian historiography in recent years. Its broad scope and methodological efficacy have definitely given us new insights into the poetics of these texts. I applaud the effort and look forward to the future research that the present study will no doubt give rise to.
