AbstractBoth medieval chronicles as well as literary, theological, and philosophical texts repeatedly broach the issue of cultural, social, and religious 'otherness'. Arguing from the perspective of various medieval studies disciplines, the planned section questions the categories used to portray this 'otherness' in different texts and the resulting consequences for treating characters that are being cast out or perceived as outcasts.
