Abstract

Presenters in this session demonstrate what working with various conceptions of place can teach us about the history and study of medieval maps. To do so, they will concentrate on the map of the Holy Land and its codicological locationing, on the situating of a monumental mappamundi fragment as binding, and on designing a place for the digital transcription and juxtaposition of toponyms on scores of mappaemundi.
