The Chronicle of Pseudo-Dionysius (or the Zuqnin Chronicle) is an important Syriac historiographical work dating from the end of the eighth century. The work is written from the point of view of a religious dissident, a Monophysite, whose personal experience as a persecuted monk in his native Mesopotamia, as well as his later life in Constantinople, make the History a most interesting and unusual source.
