Abstract

In Prussia the success in conquests against the Prussians didn’t mean, that came into being the new Christian society. After the crusades’ period we can observe a diversity of Christian religion custom and burial services with traces of pagan components, different rules of social functionality etc. The crusades didn’t put in one order the sociality; it can be indicate the analogies of Spain and the Holy Land. The Prussian World after crusades period were signified by complicated structure of religious, cultural, and social reality.
