This essay covers discusses the evolution of concepts of childhood in medieval England, Sweden, and Poland from approximately 1000 -1150 AD. It specifically examines how childhood as a social catagory was transformed with the coming of Christian practices associated with the churchyard and the sacrament of baptism.

In the process of the comparative provided in this thesis, a number of exciting possibilities and future directions for studies of Christianization, the social category of children, and the materiality of the body are suggested.
