Abstract:

The Siege of Shkodra is a book written by a Shkodran priest, Marin Barleti (also known as Marinus Barletius), about the Ottoman siege of Shkodra in 1478, led personally by Mehmed II, and about the joint resistance of the Albanians and the Venetians. The book also discusses the Ottoman siege of Shkodra in 1474. The book was originally published in 1504, in Latin, as De obsidione Scodrensi. Barleti was an eyewitness of the events. The English version was published in Albania by Onufri Publishing House in 2012, coinciding with the 100th anniversary of Albania's declaration of independence. The work was translated by David Hosaflook and includes translations of Buda's introduction and notes, Merula's "The War of Shkodra," and Becikemi's panegyric. It also includes accounts of the siege of Shkodra from early Ottoman historians, new scholarly notes, the historical context by Prof. David Abulafia, new maps based on the information in the book, and appendixes including Barleti's chronology of battle events. - Wikipedia.
