The purpose of mission was seen as the extension of Christian worship and ‘the Christian name’. Scandinavia offers a picture of (relatively) peaceful evangelism, with the protection of the rulers. The same is true of Poland and Hungary, but in the Slavonic lands along the Baltic, a long process of military conquest was initiated to overcome the Wends and Prussians. In Palestine, the main purpose of warfare was to defend the Holy Sepulchre from increasing Muslim pressure.
