The Frankish conquest of Jerusalem in 1099 influenced the representation and imagination of the holy city in Western Christianity. During the last decades scholars from a wide range of disciplines; church history, art history, crusader studies etc., have discussed the character of this influence. This session contributes to this field in three different case studies from Jerusalem, Rome, and Denmark. The papers investigate how the political possession of Jerusalem added new material dimensions to liturgical re-enactment and sacerdotal authority in the 12th century.
