This book achieved such authority that its decrees became the common law of maritime commercial issues throughout the Mediterranean. For this reason so many translations were made: into Italian, Spanish, French, Dutch, English, etc.

The book is a manuscript originating from the 13th century, and prior to 1283. The first references come from an unknown text almost certainly written in Latin, and known by the name of Consuetudo Maris. The first printed editions date from 1847.

We have 1 facsimile edition of the manuscript "Consolat de Mar": Libre del Consolat de Mar facsimile edition, published by Vicent Garcia Editores, 1977

International social justice movements and the debates that ensued prompted us to start considering the contents of our website from a critical point of view. This has led us to acknowledge that most of the texts in our database are Western-centered. We have asked the authors of our content to be aware of the underlying racial and cultural bias in many scholarly sources, and to try to keep in mind multiple points of view while describing the manuscripts. We also recognize that this is yet a small, first step towards fighting inequality.

If you notice any trace of racist or unjust narratives in our communications, please help us be part of the change by letting us know.
