Grenzerfahrung. Interaktion und Kooperation im spätmittelalterlichen Schwarzmeerraum

Webpublished.

In the late Middle Ages, the Black Sea region was a melting pot of several cultures, each very different from the others. Here, the declining Byzantine Empire, the last remainings from the Crusader states, several Mongol reigns and the rising Ottoman Empire met. Based mainly upon the registers of the Genoese Massaria di Caffa, the present study examines how it was possible to forge a dynamic and relatively stable coexistence from this contact, even if it was often interrupted by conflicts. It focuses on the organization of the Genoeses' network in the Black Sea region, but also on how they dealt with their much more influential Tatar and Ottoman neighbors on whose territory they lived, especially on the diplomatic activities. The functioning of trade, the Italians' main activity, under these circumstances is illustrated with the example of slave trade.
