Sacred Landscapes and the Conversion of Eighth-Century Hessia

The full text article is temporarily unavailable.

We apologise for the inconvenience. Please try again later.

Abstract:

The place-names of Hessia in central Germany are a valuable resource for the study of the early medieval conversion period. A number of them refer to pagan gods and sites of Christian and pagan worship which are unevidenced in the historical sources. These sites are discussed and interpreted in relation to one another, to the regional topography and to the relatively well-documented context of the Anglo-Saxon mission to Hessia in the eighth century.
