AbstractThis session will explore a possible meaning of 'otherness' in the Middle Ages by focusing on the theme of exile and banishment in Southern Italy, the Byzantine Empire, and Venetian Crete. The papers will analyse three different case studies from areas that are closely linked to each other, in a period spanning from the 10th to the 14th century. This session will give a better perspective on one of the possible consequences of political opposition in the Middle Ages.
