Abstract/Summary

This book complements Terra Sacra 1, the integrated study of the environmental impact of the crusades in the eastern Baltic. Drawing on select papers presented at the Terra Sacra conference marking the end of the Ecology of Crusading project in 2014, it provides a snapshot of recent research on multiple aspects of environmental change in the medieval eastern Baltic. The papers are concerned with both Livonia and Prussia, and are sub-divided into five themes: building in the conquered territories; sustaining the Teutonic Order’s houses; life in the multi-cultural towns of the eastern Baltic; transforming the physical landscape; transforming the spiritual landscape; and the Baltic Ordensland in its regional context.
