The Chronicle of Henry of Livonia was written by a missionary priest in the early thirteenth century to record the history of the crusades to Livonia and Estonia in around 1186-1227. While recent years have produced a significant amount of new research into Henry of Livonia, much of it has been limited to particular historical traditions and languages. A key objective of this book is to synthesise the current state of research for the international scholarly audience.
