The name ordinarily given to a valuable Byzantine chronicle of the world written in the seventh century, so designated because, like many other chronicles of the Middle Ages , it follows a system of Christian chronology based on the paschal canon, or cycle. It is also indicated at times under other titles, as: Chronicon Alexandrinum, Antiochenum, Casaubonianum, Constantinopolitanum, or Fasti Siculi. Being a Byzantine chronicle, it shows all the peculiarities of this branch of the literature of the Eastern Empire.

The edition project addresses the long-standing need for a critical edition of a foundational text of late antique and early Byzantine historiography. The much-criticized edition published under the supervision of Ludwig Dindorf did not respect the manipulations in the main codex Vaticanus gr.
Moreover, this edition lacks a critical apparatus fontium and locorum. The project prepares a new edition according to the most exacting modern standards for the series Corpus Fontium Historiae Byzantinae , Series Vindobonensis , as well as accompanying studies in scholarly journals.
The descriptive part of the chronicle varies substantially in detail and thus offers an interesting research field of illocutionary aspects apart from its dependence on relevant sources.
The analysis of the sources and of the very arbitrary selection of facts provides insight into the functioning of a selective memorial culture while raising new questions of open text theory. The text opens up a wide range of textpragmatical special investigations.
Project progress: problems which the project leader came across during the edition project of the Chronicon paschale Textstrata, Codex Unicus errors, previous misinterpretations led to the preparation of two additional monographs accompanying the edition: "Studies on the Chronicon Paschale" and "Studies on the Byzantine computus".

The Chronicon Paschale is a chronicle which was written in about A. It is an important source of information about the Byzantine Empire of that time, but for earlier periods it concentrates on sacred Jewish history. It also contains a list of Roman consuls , which is not translated here. Translated from Dindorf's text in Migne, PG.
Chronicon Paschale the Paschal or Easter Chronicle ,  also called Chronicum Alexandrinum , Constantinopolitanum or Fasti Siculi , is the conventional name of a 7th-century Greek Christian chronicle of the world. Its name comes from its system of chronology based on the Christian paschal cycle ; its Greek author named it Epitome of the ages from Adam the first man to the 20th year of the reign of the most August Heraclius. The Chronicon Paschale follows earlier chronicles. For the years to the author writes as a contemporary historian—that is, through the last years of emperor Maurice , the reign of Phocas , and the first seventeen years of the reign of Heraclius. Like many chroniclers, the author of this popular account relates anecdotes, physical descriptions of the chief personages which at times are careful portraits , extraordinary events such as earthquakes and the appearance of comets, and links Church history with a supposed Biblical chronology.
