  From  Webster's  Revised  Unabridged  Dictionary  (1913)  [web1913]: 
 
  Chronology  \Chro*nol"o*gy\,  n.;  pl  {Chronologies}.  [Gr.  ?;  ? 
  time  +  ?  discourse:  cf  F.  chronologie.] 
  The  science  which  treats  of  measuring  time  by  regular 
  divisions  or  periods,  and  which  assigns  to  events  or 
  transactions  their  proper  dates. 
 
  If  history  without  chronology  is  dark  and  confused, 
  chronology  without  history  is  dry  and  insipid.  --A. 
  Holmes.
