Hello! I'm writing my MA dissertation at the moment. I'm… - Crusades Through History
Aug. 16th, 2006
I'm writing my MA dissertation at the moment. I'm concentrating on a comparison of motivations between the particpants of the Baltic and Albigensian Crusades. Someone mentioned to me that somewhere in the Chronicle of Henry of Livonia, the idea that the Baltic region was the Virgin Mary's dowry to God, and therefore promised land, is explored, and that there is secondary literature exploring this idea in more depth.
Does this sound familiar to anyone? I am having real problems locating this idea either wihin the text itself or in any secondary reading I have come across. Help?!
I'm afraid i have cross-posted this out of desperation. Many apologises!
