Donare pesce e i suoi significati. Intorno al più antico documento slavo-romeno riguardante Chilia (1446)

Abstract : On 19 February 1446, Stephen II, Prince of Moldavia, gave the monastery of Neamţ two measures of fish and three cantars of caviar from Kilia, an important harbor town in the Danube Delta, on the border with the Ottoman Empire. Conserved in the National Archives of Romania, this document is a primary source for reconstructing both the political-administrative and the economic history of fifteenth-century Moldavia. It provides essential information on the town’s government, on core-periphery dynamics, as well as on fishing and fish transport from the Lower Danube to the rest of the country. Integrated with similar, contemporary documents, it facilitates the analysis of relations between civil and religious power and the formulation of hypotheses regarding the symbolic meaning of fish in medieval Romania.
