Book Title: The Chronicle of Henry of Livonia

Author: James A. Brundage, Editor

Book Description:

Four decades ago, when I initially contemplated a career as a historian, it was The Chronicle of Henry of Livonia that first opened up for me the incredibly rich history of the medieval Baltic Sea region, an area that until recently has received only modest attention in American academic circles. It has remained the cornerstone of much of my research and continues to be a primary source for all scholars who desire to study the expansion of Christianity, the Northern Crusades, the Hanseatic League and the incorporation of medieval Livonia into the sphere of Western European civilization.
