Abstract

The author analyzes the collective fears and the public moods in the Late Byzantine cities besieged by the Ottomans. The sources for the research are chronicles, historical and rhetorical works of Byzantine authors. The information contained in these texts allows us to understand what exactly the Byzantines feared being in the situation of the possible capture of the city by the enemy. As the present study shows, there were permanent ideas in the everyday minds of the Romanoi about the probable behavior of Ottomans towards the conquered population, and these ideas strongly determined the social activities of the inhabitants in the besieged cities.

Keywords
