9780754666271: Crusading and Chronicle Writing on the Medieval Baltic Frontier: A Companion to the Chronicle of Henry of Livonia

The Chronicle of Henry of Livonia, written by a missionary priest in the early thirteenth century to record the history of the crusades to Livonia and Estonia around 1186-1227, offers one of the most vivid examples of the early thirteenth century crusading ideology in practice. Step by step, it has become one of the most widely read and acknowledged frontier crusading and missionary chronicles. Henry's chronicle offers many opportunities to test and broaden the new approaches and key concepts brought along by recent developments in medieval studies, including the new pluralist definition of crusading and the relationship between the peripheries and core areas of Europe. While recent years have produced a significant amount of new research into Henry of Livonia, much of it has been limited to particular historical traditions and languages. A key objective of this book, therefore, is to synthesise the current state of research for the international scholarly audience. The volume provides a multi-sided and multi-disciplinary companion to the chronicle, and is divided into three parts. The first part, 'Representations,' brings into focus the imaginary sphere of the chronicle - the various images brought into existence by the amalgamation of crusading and missionary ideology and the frontier experience. This is followed by studies on 'Practices,' which examines the chronicle's reflections of the diplomatic, religious, and military practices of the christianisation and colonisation processes in medieval Livonia. The volume concludes with a section on the 'Appropriations,' which maps the reception history of the chronicle: the dynamics of the medieval, early modern and modern national uses and abuses of the text.

Review:

'The book's subtitle describes this volume as 'a companion' to the chronicle of Henry of Livonia. These studies fulfill that promise, and they succeed in providing new perspective for experienced scholars of the high-medieval crusades to Livonia and Estonia. At the same time, the authors remember the needs of teachers and new readers by approaching the most important, interesting, and difficult aspects of Henry's narrative in an accessible and highly readable fashion. The success of this book can only reflect the discipline and editorial vision of Tamm, Kaljundi, and Jensen, who together with their contributors have managed to produce a collection of essays on the Livonian chronicle and its contexts that is remarkable for its even coverage and consistent quality. Without doubt, this volume will remain the standard English-language introduction to Henry of Livonia for years to come.' Speculum '... editors Marek Tamm, Linda Kaljundi and Carsten Selch Jensen have provided a wonderful, multiple, and interdisciplinary approach to one of the seminal documents of the Middle Ages in the Baltic region.' Journal of Baltic Studies '... extremely valuable.' William Urban, in Catholic Historical Review 'Scholars interested in Henry of Livonia's Chronicle, as well as in various aspects of crusading and mission, will have an excellent resource in hand; the volume will doubtless serve as a guide to Henry's world for a long time to come.' English Historical Review 'Mit diesem Werk bekommen Forscher zur mittelalterlichen Geschichte der ostlichen Ostseekuste eine besonders wertvolle Publikation an die Hand, namlich eine Zusammenfassung langjahriger interdisziplinarer Untersuchungen zu dieser grundlegenden Quelle fur die Geschichte der Region und des bisherigen Schaffens der nationalen Geschichtsschreibungen sowie eine systematische Darstellung vielseitiger Forschungen, die von Vertretern unterschiedlicher Disziplinen geleistet werden. Ausgewahlte Studien aus dem erorterten Band bilden zweifelsohne einen hervorragenden Kommentar zu Ausgaben und Ubersetzungen der Chronik des Heinrich von Lettland.' Sehepunkte
