Research project: The Image of the East in Medieval Polemic Anti-Heretical Texts

This project aims to:

1.Analyze the anti-heretical works of the Catholic authors from 1131 to 1415; summarize mentions about the East; recreate the image of the East in the worldview of the Medieval inquisitor and/or polemicist; compare this image with the image of heresy.

2.Translate the most important texts from Latin (the language of the original sources) into Belarusian.
