Abstract

‘Spiritual Mapping’ falls under the ‘Mappings’ rubric that comprises it and two other sessions in a proposed series that aims to advance studies in the history of cartography. Papers in the ‘Spiritual Mapping’ session focus on what select maps from the 12th to the 15th centuries conveyed to their users about the ecstatic, the apocalyptic, and the displaced.
