Abstract

Our session is focusing on various aspects with regard to borders and border societies in Byzantine Macedonia, i.e. the Southern Balkan Peninsula, in the 13th and 14th centuries as well as on Montenegro and its Sacred Landscapes in the Middle Ages. We will address the perception of space, the state and character of borders and the monuments in the area of research. Moreover, we will highlight digital tools, which we develop and apply to our data, in order to enhance our TIB Frontend ‘Maps of Power’ and geocommunication capabilities.
