"Worth noting is also the fact that the Swedish bishop normally involved in the eastern campaigns was the Bishop of Linköping, not the Bishop of Uppsala." - What eastern campaigns? East of Sweden or the East of Finland? This remains unclear. Jatrius 20:30, 29 March 2007 (UTC)

When historical records mention a Swedish bishop involved in eastern campaigns of that time, it was the Bishop of Linköping. These activities include the embargo against Novgorod 1229 and invasion to Estland in 1220. This has its roots in the 11th century church decision to have a bishop in "Birka" responsible for "islands of the Baltic sea", meaning the heathen countries in the east. This position was clearly inherited by the Bishop of Linköping, even though it is not clear how that happened. --Drieakko 05:24, 30 March 2007 (UTC)
