Abstract

The project DPP focuses on the depiction and analysis of space and place in medieval written sources, of the interaction between built and natural environment, of appropriation of space and of the emergence of new political, religious, and economic structures of power. DPP compares three regions of the medieval world: the Eastern Alps (6th-12th centuries), the historical region of Macedonia (12th-14th centuries), and historical Southern Armenia (5th-11th centuries).
