Chapter Summary

Comparing the phases of development of western and eastern Europe in the Middle Ages one can easily observe important differences. This chapter indicates briefly the predominant situation in the east for most of the period from the tenth to the twelfth and thirteenth centuries. The characteristic of this period is rather slow economic development. The chapter suggests that there were in eastern Europe three zones of differing development. The first zone, the most dynamic during the thirteenth and fourteenth centuries, was the area of which the Czech mountains and the Carpathians were the principal axis. The second zone of dynamic development from the thirteenth century included the countries situated on the shores of the Baltic. Everything between these two regions was the third zone, the middle zone, in which economic progress was much less marked.

Keywords: eastern Europe; economic development; inequality; later Middle Ages
