This international and interdisciplinary project (2002-4), directed by Nora Berend (Faculty of History), involved a comparative study of the spread of Christianity and the emergence of polities in Scandinavia and Central Europe. The underlying causes of the success of the Latin form of Christianity was analysed, as was the link between conversion and consolidation of power, 'imported' institutions from Western Europe, adaptation, and local specificities. A series of workshops and conferences supported by the AHRB took place. Archive material is available, including a project description and a list of topics.
