Abstract

The session proposes new perspectives on the creation of the ‘other’ in late medieval economy. By presenting research results from three different economic spheres, namely trade and commerce, credit, as well as business ethics in Southern France, Italy, and the Empire, the papers will deal with the shaping of identities and ‘otherness’ regarding different religious and social groups and group conflicts from the 13th to the 16th century.
