They refer to Venices dealings with her own empire across the eastern Mediterranean and with foreign powers, including Turkish sultans and Byzantine emperors.

At that time, Venetian power was at its zenith (the doges boasted of being rulers of one-quarter and one-half of a quarter of the whole world), but there were dangers to Venetian naval and mercantile supremacy from the continuous advance of the Ottoman Turks across the territory formerly ruled from Constantinople. Volume 1, edited by the German scholar G. M. Thomas (1817 87) and published in 1880, covers the period 1300 50. The first document, from 1301, refers to the gathering of troops for military action against Constantinople, while the last is a message from Pope Clement VI begging the doge to join a union against the Turks.
