Abstract

‘Medieval Mappae Mundi‘ falls under the ‘Mappings’ rubric that comprises it and three other sessions in a proposed series that will advance studies in the history of cartography. Papers in the Medieval Mappae Mundi session present fresh examinations of these medieval artifacts from a variety of perspectives. Taken as a whole, this session and its complementary series constitute a uniquely broad context that supports and encourages new work on medieval maps.
