Description

The late Ch.-E. Dufourcq was one of the first to map out the relations between the Christian and Muslim coastlands of the medieval western Mediterranean. These studies reveal the extent of the contribution he made to the subject, and the care and attention with which he handled the scattered documentary sources. There are three main themes to the volume: one group of articles focuses on the political and diplomatic aspects of the relations between Spain (Catalonia in particular) and the Maghreb (the lands of the modern Morocco, Algeria and Tunisia); a second is concerned more with commercial contacts and with a comparison of the economic conditions north and south of the Mediterranean, and with the day-to-day life of the sailors and merchants who formed the link between the two. A third theme, most prominent in the final articles, is the social and economic history of Catalonia itself, a subject to which he returned in the final years of his life. Le regretté Ch.-E. Dufourcq à été l’un des premiers à établir les grandes lignes des rapports existant entre les pays côtiers chrétiens et musulmans de la Méditerannée occidentale durant le Moyen Age. Ces études revelent l’éntendue de la contribution de l’auteur à ce sujet, ainsi que le soin et l’attention avec lesquels il en a manié le s sources documentaires dispersées. On retrouve trois themes principeaux au travers de ce volume : un groupe d’articles se concentre sur les aspects politiques et diplomatiques des rapports entre l’Espagne, plus particulièrement la Catalogne, et le Maghreb; le seconde s’attache plus aux contracts commercieaux, comparant les conditions économiques du Nord et du Sud de la Méditérranee, et à la vie quotidienne des marins et des marchands qui formaient le lien entre les deux. Un troisième théme, plus proéminent dans les derniers articles, écrits par l’auteur vers à la fin de sa vie, est celui de l’histoire sociale et économique de la Catalogne elle-

About the Series

Variorum Collected Studies

The first title in the Variorum Collected Studies series was published in 1970. Since then well over 1000 titles have appeared in the series, and it has established a well-earned international reputation for the publication of key research across a whole range of subjects within the fields of history.

The history of the medieval world remains central to the series, with Byzantine studies a particular speciality, but the range of titles extends from Hellenistic philosophy and the history of the Roman empire and early Christianity, through the Renaissance and Reformation, up to the 20th century. Islamic Studies forms another major strand as do the histories of science, technology and medicine.

Each title in the Variorum Collected Studies series brings together for the first time a selection of articles by a leading authority on a particular subject. These studies are reprinted from a vast range of learned journals, Festschrifts and conference proceedings. They make available research that is scattered, even inaccessible in all but the largest and most specialized libraries. With a new introduction and index, and often with new notes and previously unpublished material, they constitute an essential resource.
