Bread is the most basic means of survival for the majority of early modern society. Similar to other Mediterranean societies, the eighteenth-century Maltese community was held hostage to the acquisition, distribution, processing and consumption of bread. The strict dependence of the Maltese archipelago on grain imports from Sicily is best evinced through the intrigues associated with the efficient distribution of grain supplies. Beyond the well-trodden theme of political intrigues and economic negotiations involved in the acquisition of grain, this book employs the grain-bread cycle to explore various aspects of panivours’ activities that so far have remained unnoticed.
