Abstract

In this essay one presents a brief analysis of the section of the Chronicon Conimbricense (manuscript written in the monastery of the Holy Cross of Coimbra in the late 12th century) relating to biblical and ecclesiastical facts. The crossing between this section and the one relating to the history of Portugal during the reign of Afonso Hen riques, in which one proceeds to t he encomium of t he warrior qualities of the founder king, supports the hypothesis that the origins of the kingdom, highlighted by its biblical and ecclesiastical ascendants, are thought according to the theory of the six ages proposed by St. Augustine, therefore creating a common reference within Medieval Christendom.
