This volume concentrates on the "conceptual boundary" through Europe which is determined by Western and Eastern Christianity. The single articles research how this boundary has developed in different periods and epochs and in different places. They also show that the boundary has never been a stable and defined division, but that it was also subject to change and development and a place of encounter and exchange between religions and cultures.
