Thanks to the invention of a small-size codex in the 2627 folder of the Fondo di religione at Milan’s Archivio di Stato, we publish here the full text of a short chronicle of the 14th century. Its title is Miracula meritis gloriose Virginis Marie facta in opere eius ecclesie de novo edifficate in Modoetia in contrata Strate; until now, we have only known it through the partial transcription made by Anton Francesco Frisi in the 18th century. Bonincontro Morigia from Monza (which is also the author of the more famous Chronicon Modoetiense) wrote that chronicle. The text is dedicated to the historical events happened in the village of Monza, from its origins in the Longobardic age, until the tumultuous sequence of events occurred in the first half of 14th century. In both these works, the chronicler turns out to be very careful about political factors, but he also focuses on the extraordinary and miraculous events. In fact, he is convinced that they are essential elements, regarding the historical facts he writes about. As in the Chronicon the miracles performed by the Monza patron st. Giovanni Battista were definitely relevant, in the Miracula narration Morigia gives special attention to Mary’s interventions. This is mainly due to the diffusion of a popular religious feeling involving a strong devotion to the Virgin Mary. Therefore, the Miracula become, in the author’s intention, the representation and the wish for a reconciled and unanimous society.
