The papers of this session will deal with Archbishop Eskil of Lund (c. 1100-1181) and his exile in France, with Archbishop Anders Sunesen of Lund (c. 1167-1228) and his participation in the Baltic crusades, and finally with Queen Ingeborg of France (c. 1175-1237/38) during the twenty years she was confined in France while Philip II Augustus tried to divorce her. The papers are united by the common purpose of investigating and comparing how these Danes from the highest nobility dealt with the material conditions of being away from home, often living in situations of privation and isolation.
