Activiteit: Academic presentationAcademic


Aim of this paper is to focus on the Byzantine documents (imperial chrysobulls and letters) directed at Venice from the tenth century up to the sack of Constantinople in 1204, as well as some Italian documents related to the Byzantine grants dating from this period, and to investigate issues concerning the relations between Byzantium and Venice. Emphasis will be given to legal questions arising from the Byzantine grants to the city of Venice, including grants of immovable property to the Venetians in the Byzantine capital, the legal status of the Venetians within the Byzantine empire and information about the Venetian community in Constantinople.
