AbstractThis session will explore aspects of 'otherness' to the Cistercians, first through the expansion of Cistercian monasticism in its encounter with non-Christian peoples along the southern Baltic coast, and then by showing how the West - notably the Cistercians Garnerius of Clairvaux and Henry of Albano in preaching the Third Crusade - imagined their opponents in the East and submitted them to the wider patterns of theology and Salvation History.
