AbstractThe Church as an institution and a building facilitated the crossing of borders, political and spiritual, which is here demonstrated through three connected case studies based on Danish material form the long 14th century. Paper -a addresses how the murder of a king became part of trans-European legal conflict. Paper -b approaches the twin entranceways of parish churches as liturgical borders and asks why some of these doors began to be blocked. Paper -c addresses how wall-paintings during the 14th century began to explore concepts of time and space in new modes, enabling a view into the beyond.
