  • Abstract: The Volume d’Orose (A. Vérard, 1491) is a rewriting of the Histoire ancienne jusqu’à Cesar; the first universal history in French and a prosimetrum. In order to impose his work as a translation from Orose and to redirect the interpretation, he invented a complex system of text opening taking the place of prologue in verses. He also inserted prose remarks related to Orose’s apologetics project and new poems.
