Call for Papers: Mercenaries and Crusa...

An academic conference "Mercenaries and Crusaders (1202-1480s)" will be held from 22 – 24 June 2022 at the University of Debrecen, Hungary, hosted by

the "Centre for the History of Society and Culture" of the University of Coimbra; "Hungary in Medieval Europe Research Group" at the Department of History, University of Debrecen; and the "Histoire et Cultures de l’Antiquité et du Moyen Âge Laboratoire" of the University of Lorraine, Nancy, France.

Mercenaries often participated in crusades and also fought on the opposing side, and the period of the crusades overlaps with the rise of mercenary contingents

in Europe. During the Hundred Years War, Sir John Hawkwood and Arnaud de Cervole were alternately recruited for crusading efforts and excommunicated when they

crossed the line into illegal activity.


Abstracts should be 400 words or less for individual papers or panel proposals; and 300 words or less for papers that will be presented as part of a panel.

English, German or French should be used.

Deadline : 15 November 2021.
