These texts focus on the life and multifaceted academic research and writing of the honouree. The first part concludes with a detailed catalogue of Chrysa Maltezou’s publications. The main body of the volume (748 pages) contains alphabetically the studies of forty six original essays in Greek, English, French, Italian and German.

The volume features essays by Chrysa Maltezou’s colleagues, friends and students, who specialize in relevant fields, and are works that touch upon various issues relating to History, from late Byzantine centuries to the end of the Venetian domination, such as the history of institutions, social history, everyday life, East and West relations, the Greeks in Venice and so on, as well as issues regarding Art History, Literature and Publications.

The essays cover the wide spectrum of the honouree’s research pursuits and shed light to the social and cultural facets as detected in the regions under Latin occupation as well as in Venice from the beginning of the 13th to the end of the 18th century.
