 Economic Agency Relations in Venetian Mediterranean Trade, 1350-1450

The institutional design of agency relations in medieval long-distance trade has received considerable attention in both economic history and institutional economics. My research focuses on the transcultural elements of Venetian trade relationships with the Islamic Levant and Crete in the late medieval period. On the basis of merchant letters and judicial documents, I shall develop a theoretical framework that adequately accounts for the observed historical trade patterns. This is intended as an extension of existing institutional theories of impersonal exchange that are confined to mono-cultural environments.
