M.A. Mediterranean Studies



In his seminar, Dr Ivan Grech will focus on how the southern Sicilian town of Scicli and its relevance to Hospitaller Malta (1530-1798) can make for a most apposite case study in microhistory. While for Medieval Malta, Scicli was a mere trading post, convenient for the barter of commodities with Sicilian products, for Hospitaller Malta it became the most immediate gateway to Christendom and an ever-expanding world. The ferry crossings to Scicli constituted a historical continuum, periodically rekindling the umbilical links with Sicily whose produce, communication potential, and geographical bearing kept sustaining Malta’s survival throughout early modernity.

Entry to the Seminar is free of charge and open to the public. Refreshments will be served after the Seminar. Students are encouraged to attend. For more information on the Mediterranean Institute Seminar Series kindly contact the Convenor, Dr Norbert Bugeja, at
