Spreading the Word: Baltic Crusades

Today, I share with you a podcast episode by the BBC4, which discusses ”the Baltic Crusades, the name given to a series of overlapping attempts to convert the pagans of North East Europe to Christianity at the point of the sword”. Since I am originally from this region, this is a special one to me. Enjoy! Link to the podcast episode: Baltic Crisades.

Keeping up the “Spreading the Word” tradition, every Friday, I hope to share with you an article I’ve read or a video I’ve seen and considered it to be inspiring or enlightening. I feel it is important to take good care not just of our physical but also of our mental well-being. Humans have always turned and returned to storytelling. My Fridays’ “Spreading the Word” articles are an online version of sharing worthwhile stories.   

keep exploring and storytelling!
