Enrico Dandolo and the rise of Venice. (reprint, 2003)

Madden, Thomas F.

Johns Hopkins U. Press


298 pages




This is a paperbound reprint of a 2003 book. Between the 11th and 13th centuries, Venice grew from a struggling merchant commune into a powerful maritime empire. In this study, Madden (history, Saint Louis U.) traces the city-state's rise through an examination of the life of Enrico Dandolo, who ruled Venice as doge from 1192 until his death in 1205. Coverage includes Dandolo's efforts to reform the Venetian Church; his role in the Fourth Crusade; and the social, political, and religious environment in which he worked.
