Attempts to understand the ways in which space was conceived and represented in the medieval world has long been of special interest, and methodological approaches have multiplied. Such attention has focused on graphic representations of space and place, on period maps. Attention has now turned to reading medieval textual from a spatial, topographical perspective. Speakers in this session employ this reading methodology, while pairing it with examinations of graphically presented spaces and places.
