Riassunto: Travel in the Middle Ages is filled with the stories and adventures of those who hazarded hostile landscapes, elements, and people?out of want or necessity?to get from place to place. While most journeys involved very short distances (home to market or village to village), longer trips were not uncommon in the Middle Ages. Clergy were frequently called upon to act as ambassadors, messengers, and overseers to the various monasteries and churches within their jurisdiction. Merchants, agents of the king, and pilgrims were also frequently required to travel. While sharing the fascinating stories of these ordinary wayfarers, Verdon also relates colorful tales of the journeys of notable historical figures such as Marco Polo and Christopher Columbus.   Part I of Travel in the Middle Ages addresses the means by which people traveled. This section contains vivid descriptions of modes of conveyance, road systems, sea lanes, tolls, taxes, and even pirates. Knowing the risks involved, why did people brave the uncertainty of travel? Part II of the book addresses this question by identifying five main motivational categories of medieval travel. Part III deals with travel myths, monsters, and fictitious journeys of medieval fantasy writers. Verdon concludes with a pithy critique of travel in the modern world. Appearing for the first time in an English translation, Travel in the Middle Ages will delight anyone with an interest in medieval culture or travel books.

L'autore: JEAN VERDON is professor emeritus of literature and humanities at Université Limoges. He is the author of numerous books, including Night in the Middle Ages, published by the University of Notre Dame Press.

Descrizione libro University of Notre Dame Press. Hardback. Condizione libro: new. BRAND NEW, Travel in the Middle Ages, Jean Verdon, George Holoch, As a companion to his previous volume "Night in the Middles Ages", Jean Verdon offers insight into the pitfalls and perils of travelling during medieval times. "Travel in the Middle Ages" is filled with the stories and adventures of those who hazarded hostile landscapes, elements, and people - out of want or necessity - to get from place to place. Verdon contends that a journey in the current sense, suggesting both "the movement of a person who travels to a fairly distant place" and philosophical ideas of distraction and flight from self, did not exist in the Middle Ages. Indeed, he says, "nothing either in the means of communication or in the landscape encouraged travel". And yet, Verdon points out, the world of the Middle Ages was one of unceasing movement. While most journeys involved very short distances (home to market or village to village), longer trips were not uncommon in the Middle Ages. Clergy were frequently called upon to act as ambassadors, messengers, and overseers to the various monasteries and churches within their jurisdiction. Merchants, agents of the king, and pilgrims were also frequently required to travel.
