Abstract

This panel moves away from modern conceptions of the medieval world to return to particular primary source sand see how they constructed the world around them. What did they think medieval Europe (or their portion of it) looked like? Each of the papers in this panel aims to examine a specific source to find out what they thought about their world around them; how they constructed it; or even if they did. In this way, we hope to ask new and different questions about the scope and periodization of what is medieval, as well as inspire others to do the same with their own sources.
