The present collection deals first with European trade across the Mediterranean in the 13th-14th centuries, both on an international level, and with regard to the particular circumstances, for example, of Amalfi, charting the changing pattern of its commercial relationships through this period. The following articles concentrate on the Lombards, Italian bankers and merchants, notably from Sienna and Piacenza. Professor Bautier also looks in detail at their activities in France, both as traders at the fairs of Champagne, and as bankers and money-lenders, and makes an especial study of their role in the expansion of credit during the later Middle Ages.
