Chapter Summary

Textual similarities between the individual records of the Passio Olavi and other sources provide important information about the relationships between different intellectual and cultural centers in medieval Europe. This chapter presents an overview on the Augustinian canons in Holstein. The Holstein presents a contact zone between the North, i.e. the Baltic region and power field of the Danish kings, and the South, i.e. power field of the Saxons kings, as well as between the German tribes in the west and the Slav in the east. The chapter discusses the Passio Olavi between northern Germany, Denmark, Norway and Sweden. Holstein since 811 belonged to the Frankish Empire, and Schleswig was a part of Denmark. The chapter concludes that the investigation of the Passio Olavi from Bordesholm shows new cult and cultural transfer pathways. The original text of the chapter is in German.

Keywords: Augustinian canons; Frankish Empire; medieval Europe; Passio Olavi; Saxons kings
