Palermo and Carini, 1992: Papers from this conference, held jointly with the Officina di Studi Medievali, have as a general theme the `Norman Age', with a special slant towards the Mediterranean world. Subjects treated include the policies of the Norman rulers, their military and naval organisation and coinage, chronicle sources and aspects of church history in their principalities, and the relations of the Normans with Byzantium, the Fatimid rulers and the crusading states. Other papers treat more generally of art, literature and language in the Norman period.
