Chapter Summary

Over the past few decades the multiethnic and multilingual character of the Eastern Mediterranean basin in the High and Late Middle Ages has become a subject of growing importance in medieval scholarship. This chapter gives a general outline of the most important material we have at hand for diplomatic research in the Eastern Mediterranean. According to cultural and geographical criteria the papers fall into three thematic units. The first one deals with archival sources originating from or concerning the Latin East in general. The second thematic unit of the present volume is dedicated to chancery traditions in Frankish Cyprus. The third section, intends to present a comparative approach to archival sources emanating on the one hand from the relations and legal transactions between Ottoman and Mamluk rulers and their Christian subjects and, on the other, from diplomatic contacts between Byzantines, Muslims and Latins.

Keywords: Byzantines; Eastern Mediterranean; Frankish Cyprus; High Middle Ages; Late Middle Ages; Mamluk; Ottoman
