AbstractThese three related sessions aim, first, to investigate the historical role of various kinds of borders in the Middle Ages, second, to locate the Middle Ages in a maritime and global perspective, and third, to reconsider historiographical biases national perspectives have accumulated so far. The first covers the economic and political functions in the British Isles, Scandinavia, and the Mediterranean. The second focuses on governmental aspects of Byzantium. Beyond Christendom, the third's cases reach the Indian Ocean, Northern China, and the Japanese archipelago.
