Reviews 257 secular and Cistercian, wield their power with a ruthlessness not dissimilar from the power-play of dukes, margraves, and knights hospitallers in the acquisitive and combative world of feudal politics. The aggressive behaviour ofKolbaczAbbeyanditsfilial,MarienwaldetowardstheCistercianwomen's house of Owiska is a particularly memorable vignette. All Jamroziak's chosen houses are male; women's houses are mentioned only in passing and these occasional references are all the more provocative for their scarcity. The omission may be due to there being no comparable establishments in Scotland to balance coverage of women's houses in Pomerania. One is left to surmise how, on a broader scale, the vicissitudes confronting women's houses in this region differed from those with which the men's houses had to cope. The geographical region that Jamroziak's study embraces accommodated, in fact, no less than nine women's houses, all established during the period 11931296. Survival and Success on Medieval Borders is a valuable addition to the University of Hull's `Medieval Texts and Cultures of Northern Europe Series' and an admirable companion to Jamroziak's earlier study of Rievaulx Abbey (2005).
