What did borders, material or non-material, mean for governance in the Middle Ages? How did ecclesiastical or lay governors manage to cross borders or not? In our papers, we analyse four separate cases: the Anglo-Saxon Kingdoms, the Holy Roman Empire during the Great Interregnum, the travel of English royalty on the Continent, and the medieval Dominican Order. Each analysis will discuss individual characteristics of the borders in medieval governance as constructed in political or ecclesiastical conflicts.
