Thesis abstract: 

My dissertation aims at explaining the changes which occurred on the Adriatic after the Black Death epidemic of 1348. By employing different genre of sources I will analyze what impact did the Black Death leave in this geographic area. I will look into the question of daily life, by focusing on religious, economic and social changes which occurred at the time.
