Chronicle Meaning and Definition in Wikipedia


A chronicle (Latin: chronica, from Greek χρονικά, from χρόνος, chronos, "time") is an account of historical events, arranged in order from earliest to latest. A chronicle is different from a narrative or history, as events which are not believed to be important may be excluded from the latter; a chronicler is more concerned with documenting events in sequential order.
