In a recent volume dedicated to the legacy of the Peace of Passarowitz, edited by Charles Ingrao, Nikola Samardžić and Jovan Pešalj, one of the editors bemoaned the fact that the end of World War I was always likely to obscure the Peace of Passarowitz of two centuries earlier. As Ingrao declared on the first page of his introductory article:

While we have gathered to commemorate the approaching tercentenary of the treaty between the Ottoman, Habsburg, and Venetian empires, scholars and pundits across Europe and North America will, in just a few years, more likely observe the end of the First World War in 1918 and, with it, the dissolution of the Habsburg monarchy.

In addition, the fact that commercial treaties have never been a sustained object of scholarly focus, for instance in comparison with peace treaties, has made it hard to appreciate part of the significance of the treaties concluded at Passarowitz and to see them in a wider picture. In this article, I want to open up this subject and place the commercial agreements of Passarowitz in such a wider perspective, one that also inspired a current volume I co-edited with Antonella Alimento on The Politics of Commercial Treaties in the Eighteenth Century.
