Die Geschichtsschreiberin Anna Komnene (1083- ca. 1153), Tochter des byzantinischen Kaisers Alexios I. Komnenos (Reg. 1081 - 1118), behandelt in ihrem Werk die Regierungszeit ihres Vaters von seinen ersten Erfolgen als jugendlicher Heerfuhrer und seiner gegluckten Rebellion bis zu seinem Tod. Unter anderem schildert sie den Ersten Kreuzzug aus byzantinischer Sicht und entwirft eindrucksvolle Portraits der Protagonisten. Ihre Darstellung gehoert zusammen mit den Werken eines Michael Psellos und eines Niketas Choniates zu den glanzendsten literarischen Leistungen der byzantinischen Historiographie.

Die neue kritische Edition enthalt zahlreiche Verbesserungen des Textes gegenuber ihren Vorgangerinnen, erstmalig eine vollstandige Dokumentation der Epitome sowie umfangreiche den Text erschliessende Indices.

Athanasios Kambylis is Emeritus Professor of Byzantine and Modern Greek Studies at the University of Hamburg; Diether R. Reinsch is Professor in the Department of Byzantine and Modern Greek Studies at the Free University of Berlin.
