This book provides a microhistorical reconstruction of rural ways of life and communities of farmers and shepherds in the Venetian Dalmatia of the fifteenth century, specifically on the island of Korčula. This anthropologically inspired analysis is made possible due to archival sources that are unusually rich for the epoch – even compared with the Mediterranean region as a whole – relating to local Venetian administrative and legal practices.
Fabian Kümmeler, Institute for Balkan and Habsburg Studies, Austrian Academy of Sciences, Austria.
"Overall, Kümmeler offers an engaging journey into the world of a fifteenth-century island society.His concluding remarks point to wider comparative potential, be it with other areas along the Dalmatiancoast (such as Poljica, where feudal structures lingered more strongly), the terraferma around Venice or casestudies even further afield. Anyone interested in concepts of community, rural economies and town-countryinteractions will find Korčula a stimulating read." Beat Kümin in: Agricultural History Review, 2022
