Venetian Notaries in Fourteenth-Century Crete
Alan M. Stahl

This volume, which includes the texts in Latin with an English preface and extensive indices, contains the text of two notarial protocols in the Notai di Candia series of the Archivio di Stato di Venezia. Both notaries were active in the town of Candia, modern Herakleion, in the Venetian colony of Crete in the early fourteenth century.Though the two protocols published here are fragmentary in terms of their survival, and selective in the aspects of life that they record, they are both valuable sources for understanding the lives of Venetian, Greek, and Jewish men and women in fourteenth-century Crete.
