How did medieval people create frontiers to delimit areas, how did they understand the function of frontiers, and how did they describe these frontiers? To what extent did medieval observers see a frontier between themselves and other groups, and how did real interaction compare with ideological or narrative formulations of such interaction? The articles in this volume begin to answer these questions. Many of the papers incorporated originated at a colloquium presented in Cambridge, November 1998 at St. Catherine's College. The topics include: Byzantium's eastern frontier in the 10th and 11th centuries; government and the indigenous in the Latin kingdom of Jerusalem; Latins and Greeks on crusader Cyprus; and the frontier of Church reform in the British Isles.
