This chapter discusses the Venetian Chronicles and archives as potential sources of information regarding the history of Byzantium and the Crusades. It shows that the histories of the crusades, Venice, and Byzantium are interlinked, and the scholarly approaches to this relationship are presented. The Venetian sources are categorized into three main groups – narrative sources, diplomatic sources, and commercial documents – which are discussed in the chapter. The Fourth Crusade and the Crusader states are also examined.
