Abstract

Cored in the Kingdoms of Hungary, Poland, and Bohemia, medieval Central Europe had varying geographic forms, patterns of political organization, and socio-economic and cultural structures, also reflecting wider religious divergences and multiple cultural connections. These were particularly apparent in the region’s dynamic exchange with the surrounding areas. Some forms of this exchange, such as political connections of the ruling elites have already been initially researched, while the interactions that took place in less visible and marginal structures, or with more distant parts of the continent, need yet to be explored. By focusing on several micro-examples, this session indicates new aspects of the exchange that contributed to the region’s socio-cultural diversification.
