Saints and Sainthood Around the Baltic Sea
Full Product Description
The book covers most of the Baltic Region and a wide range of topics, for example the introduction of foreign (and a "olda (TM)) saints into new regions, the creation of new local cults of saints in newly Christianized regions, the cult of saints in the creation of political and lay identities, the adaption of cult of saints in folk poetry and the use of saints in times of war. Questions of methodology in the research on the medieval cult of saints are also addressed. Chronologically, the articles cover most of the Middle Ages from the Scandinavian Varangians in Rus in the 10th century to the late medieval Northern societies of the late 15th century. The book will appeal to scholars interested in the study of cult of saints in the Middle Ages and provides a useful introduction for students of the cult of saints in the medieval Northern world.
