Perceptions of East and West in the Middle Ages
The 23rd Medieval Studies Day 2017 in Nijmegen will address perceptions of East and West in the Middle Ages. Throughout the Middle Ages the three main heirs of the Roman Empire – the European, Byzantine and Islamic Worlds – fought in war and met through pilgrimage, diplomatic and scholarly exchanges and trade. Their experiences and perceptions were written down in a wide variety of sources. They were informed by mutual animosity, but also by interest and curiosity. The Medieval Studies Day will explore the diverse and sometimes contradictory perceptions of East and West.
