CEU Medievalia aims to be a complex publication series presenting handbooks on the state of various research fields and source collections. These volumes concentrate on medieval studies in or pertaining to Central and Eastern Europe and their influence or impact on studies of the Middle Ages worldwide. They are intended primarily for the attention of scholars of the region, but equally, they represent contemporary issues of interest to many study centers in this field. They were built on the work of faculty and students in the framework of research projects, conferences, workshops and their goal is to influence further research projects and educational programs. Thus they are combination of high-level graduate education, policy-related research projects, and the plan to make available and to publish the medieval heritage of Central and Eastern Europe for an international scholarly audience.

The Harbour of All This Sea and Realm offers an overview of the Lusignan, Genoese and Venetian history of the main port city of Cyprus, a Mediterranean crossroads. The essays contribute to the understanding of Famagusta’s social and administrative structure, as well as the influences on its architectural, artisan, and art historical heritage from the thirteenth to sixteenth centuries. We read of crusader bishops from central France, metalworkers from Asia Minor, mercenaries from Genoa, refugees from Acre, and traders from Venice. The themes of the city’s diasporas and cultural hybridity permeate and unify the essays in this collaborative effort.

Some of the studies use archival sources to reconstruct the early stages of appearances of various buildings. Such research is of vital importance, given the threat to Famagusta’s medieval and early modern heritage by its use as a military base since 1974.
