Medieval Amalfi and its Diaspora, 800-1250

Patricia Skinner

  • The first full-length study of medieval Amalfi; synthesises previous scholarship into one volume
  • Fuses Amalfi's internal and external histories together to understand Amalfi's significance in the history of the medieval Mediterranean world
  • Adopts a people-centred approach so adds interest by focusing on individual stories within a broader narrative
  • Uses material drawn from Amalfi's rich archives to reconstruct its history from the mid-ninth century onwards
  • Highlights flaws in previous approaches to Amalfitan history
