Description

Envisioning and producing maps allowed medieval geographers, historians, religious, scholars, university masters, and others to work out, present, and communicate their visions of the shape of the earth’s inhabited regions, the oecumene, and much more. Speakers in this session will discuss the relationships of maps to the contexts—religious, political, university, historical—from which they grew and how particular configurations of the oecumene shaped and were shaped by those contexts.
