Diplomatic Texts concerning the Morea


There is still much work to be done on the production of French-language diplomatic texts from the Morea. Listed below are French-language texts which did not originate from the Morea, but rather which concern members of the French-language court established there.

For more information on the linguistic milieux of the Angevin court in Naples, which exerted a profound effect both politically and culturally on life in the Morea, see Fordham's related site on the French of Italy, at http://www.fordham.edu/frenchofitaly/ItAngevins.asp.
