Abstract
This paper examines why Simon (d. 1148), the chronicler of the abbey of Saint-Bertin in Flanders, designated all of the remaining evidence for sixty years of the communal past as 'unmemorable'. An analysis of the chronicler's sources and context of writing reveals that his rejection of these memories was determined both by personal experience and the desire to advocate the legitimacy of the then current reforms. To these factors he subordinated the need to provide his fellow monks with a sense of historical continuity and the opportunity to present a troubled but significant part of the abbey's history.
