Review: This text represents a contribution to the history of the Northern crusades and the Chritianization of the Baltic lands in the Middle Ages, from the beginnings of the Catholic mission to the time of the Reformation. Topics covered include: discussions of the ideology and practice of crusade and conversion, studies of the motivation of the crusading countries (Denmark, Sweden and Germany), the effects of the crusades on the eastern Baltic coast (Finland, Estonia, Livonia, Prussia and Lithuania), and an analysis of the literature and historiography of the crusade. The book brings together essays from the western tradition and essays from the modern Baltic countries and Russia
