The field of Renaissance Mediterranean studies for the period 1300–1700 has produced several of the great works of 20th-century historical scholarship, and because of the transregional character of the Mediterranean, which deprivileges the nation-state, the region continues to attract significant interdisciplinary scholarly research. While much has been written about aspects or parts of the Mediterranean, this entry will focus primarily on works that attempt to address the larger questions of the Mediterranean as a broad entity. Thus, the criteria for selection has been to favor texts that address historical issues in a broadly Mediterranean framework, rather than studies that focus more narrowly on regions of the Mediterranean. Because of the unique challenges presented in studying a geographically large and culturally diverse region, one with tremendous linguistic variation and different national historiographical traditions, a large number of works that attempt to treat the Mediterranean are collaborative collections of essays.
