It traces the elaboration of the De multro from a set of wax notes to a nearly completed chronicle. Rider studies Galberts sources, the way he took and organized his notes, the distinct stages in which the chronicle was written, its literary qualities, and the conceptual tools he used to comprehend the events he related in it.
