Summary: In the Middles Ages, the edges of someone's world could carry various meanings and represent different things. They might, on the onehand, have been situated in far-away regions, mainly in the north and east, lands most often only known from hearsay and inhabited by strange beings: humans who had their faces on their chest, did not have a mouth, or had the heads of dogs. On the other hand, the edges of an individual's world could also just mean the borders of the community they lived in, borders that they may not have had a chance to cross their whole lives long.

Riassunto: In the Middles Ages, the edges of one s world could represent different meanings. On the one hand, they might have been situated in far-away regions, mainly in the east and north, that one most often only knew from hearsay and which were inhabited by strange beings: humans with their faces on their chest, without a mouth, or with dog heads. On the other hand, the edges of one s world could just mean the borders of the community where one lived and that one sometimes might not have had the possibility to cross during one s whole life. These varieties of edges of the medieval world were the topic of an international workshop that was held in 2006 on the Estonian island of Muhu, itself an area that could easily be connected with the topic of this meeting. In the present proceedings of the workshop, specialists from eight European countries offer their ideas about different edges of the medieval world and contribute to a discussion that has been increasing greatly in Medieval Studies in recent times.
