Description

The Medieval Association of Place and Space (MAPS): Space: Time

This session investigates scientific and other ideas about terrestrial space, and it explores diagrammatic representations of time in manuscripts and artworks. How is space apprehended, considered, and rendered? How is time thought about and presented, even in spatial terms? The object is to historicize seemingly unchanging units of space and time (for example, area, distance, height, and chronology) in order to see how the Middle Ages understood them in ways that may be different from other historical periods, including our own.
