Central European Medieval Studies
Simon Forde and Nada Zecevic
From Germany to the east Baltic; Austria and Hungary, south-east Europe to Romania and Moldavia – with foci on the Latin West and the Byzantine East
1000 to 1500, with slight overlap at either end
Medieval studies; interdisciplinarity; East-central Europe; Central Europe; Hungary; Poland-Lithuania; Balkan region; Baltic region; Austria; Germany
|The series focuses on the geographical centre of the European continent, but also a region representing various historically changing meanings and concepts. It challenges simplistic notions of Central Europe as a periphery to the medieval ‘West’, or, equally, a border between barbarity and civilization; an area of a lively convergence of different ethnic groups, and a socially and culturally framed common space; a point where different ‘Others’ met, or an intermediary ‘bridge’ between the Roman Catholicism and Latinity of the West, and the Slavic Orthodoxy and Hellenism of the Byzantine East.
