For almost two years, between September 2009 and July 2011, João Gouveia Monteiro wrote a fortnightly column for the regional newspaper “Diário de Coimbra” at the invitation of the editor. This is a compilation of those 40 chronicles, slightly revised and adapted, and organized into three overlapping areas: “Voyages through history” (20 chronicles, covering a variety of subjects in political, military and cultural history of Europe from Antiquity, the Middle Ages and start of the Early Modern period); “A Look at Culture” (10 chronicles on books and reading, especially amongst young people); and “Coimbra and Citizenship” (10 chronicles, mostly related with the cultural life of Coimbra, with its facilities and projects and various patrons). These are chronicles for all ages and professions, particularly for those that love history, books and of course Coimbra!
