Authorities in the Middle Ages investigates the definition, establishment, and collapse of medieval authority from antiquity to the mid-fifteenth century. The interdisciplinary approach resonates with the multi-faceted field of medieval culture, its social structures, and various forms of communication, in various disciplines. There is a special emphasis on such understudied areas as the Balkans, Iceland and the eastern fringes of Scandinavia.
