Nora Berend is a Professor of History at St. Catherine's College at Cambridge University, where her teaching and research focus on Medieval history, especially social and religious history, c. 1000-c. 1300. She has worked on the changing regulation of child oblation in canon law; on the place of non-Christians in medieval Christian society, including economic, social, legal, and religious interaction; and on medieval frontiers, Christianization and state-building. Her current work and future projects focus on ideas of Christendom, sanctity and the history of social exclusion. Some of Professor Berend's many publications include At the Gate of Christendom: Jews, Muslims and 'Pagans' in Medieval Hungary c. 1000- c. 1300 (Cambridge University Press, 2001), which was awarded the Gladstone Prize for non-British history by The Royal Historical Society; Medieval Frontiers: Concepts and Practices (co-edited with David Abulafia, Ashgate 2002);
and, as editor, Christianization and the Rise of Christian Monarchy: Scandinavia, Central Europe and Rus' c. 900-1200 (Cambridge University Press, 2007).
