"With the present work, the series Documentary Sources of Maltese History is now seeing its fifteenth volume, the fifth in the sub-series, dedicated to the Chancery records held at Palermo. The first four volumes covered the years 1259- 1500 and the present one extends the span to 1515. The gap, down to 1530, is closing fast; after that year, with the arrival of the Order of St John in Malta, these records cease to occupy the centre-stage in Maltese political and administrative affairs. The contents of the present volume - a total of 405 documents - are particularly significant because they cover neatly the gap in local municipal records - The Acta Juratorum et Consilii Civitatis et Insulae Maltae - which, for the sixteenth century, only start at 1512. Like the previous volumes in this sub-series, the present on continues to provide interested readers and, particularly, researches, with important details of the royal government of these islands without which the solid historiographical basis for the period would be lacking. This is particularly so for Gozo, practically all of whose records are still missing after the 1551 tragedy." -Henry Frendo, General Editor

The present publication is the thirteenth in the series Documentary Sources of Maltese History and the second in it's sub-series, Part III, dedicated to documents of the Maltese Universitates. For a long time, and since the conception of the series some twenty years ago, it has been a desideratum of researches of Maltese History to have a comprehensive and exhaustive collection of the Maltese and Gozitan capitula in a single accessible volume in which one could easily home in on desired material. The object of the present publication is to bring together all published and unpublished capitula in one comprehensive volume, suitably endowed with annotations, captions, indices and cross-referencing for ease of access to all the minutiae contained therein as another important tool in the hands of both the specialized researcher into Maltese Medieval History and the general reader interested in the subject. An extensive introduction locates the material in its appropriate historical setting, showing how such clusters of capitula reflect the vicissitudes, aspirations and achievements of the Maltese and Gozitan people in the particular period of which they are a product.
