The site includes an introduction and four essays written by the editors to provide an orientation to and case studies of the material, and interactive maps of the parishes of Venice, the mainland, the Adriatic and Ionian seas, and Venice in the Aegean. The editors also provide the transcriptions of their sources along with images of the original manuscript via ACLS Humanities E-Book.
