In the last three decades, the historical earthquake investigation became an outstand-

newly discovered historical documents from public and private archives, including
military and religious documents, press reports, correspondences, publications, etc.,
brings new light on the effect of past earthquakes and contributes to the assessment
of their characteristics. Historical documents are nowadays examined in the frame
of modern methodologies and new approaches applied in the study of individual
