This is a study of the Cypriot Chronicle of Leontios Machairas as discourse. The basic hermeneutic construct for the book is that a number of modern disciplines may offer valuable insights into Mediaeval textuality. The book is based on Dawkins' edition of the Chronicle, but juxtaposition is carried out with the other two manuscripts on Oxford and Ravenna. Structures of narrative and style in the Chronicle are also compared with works of Byzantine historians and French chronicles, and the author locates Leontios Machairas within the Western rather the Greek tradition of history writing.
