Our Book of the Month for May will be volume 1 of Matthew of Edessa’s Chronicle, translated by Robert Bedrosian.
This chronicle covers the Near East from the 10th to 12th centuries, a world where one can find Armenians, Byzantines, Arabs, Seljuks, Iranians, and Crusaders. This volume is part of a three-volume set (the other two will be our Books of the Month for June and July), and covers the years 952 to 1052. You can learn more about it from Sophene Books.
It is available for our readers based in the United States and Canada who sign up to our Patreon page at either the $45 (US) or $65 (US) tier between now and the end of May. Then we will send your shipping information to the publisher who will send you the book. You also get to watch the video cast ExtraMedieval with Daniele Cybulskie, plus ad-free access to both the Medievalists.net website and The Medieval Podcast.
