The medieval world view, as expressed in maps, was not simply a matter of measuring space, but of placing the earth in a total philosophical and religious setting. Viewing medieval world maps not as isolated sheets of parchment, but in the context of the manuscripts in which they appear, this book reveals the role maps played in medieval thought and how medieval thought determined their form and content.
