Research output: Book/ReportScholarly edition


The volume comprises a selection of articles by the late Julian Chrysostomides (1928-2008), former Director of the Hellenic Institute at Royal Holloway and Emeritus Reader in Byzantine History at the University of London. The articles focuse on Byzantium after the Fourth Crusade and its relationship with Venice, particularly in the late Palaeologan period. Seven of the articles deal with aspects of Veneto-Byzantine dealings in the Peloponnese, while the remainder concentrate on the political and commercial ties between the Byzantines and Venetians. The essays draw upon Julian Chrysostomides’unrivalled knowledge of the relevant Venetian documents.
