‘In Mapping Medieval Geographies Keith D. Lilley has brought together a broad spectrum of scholars to explore both the medieval engagement with geography as a practice and as a subject of inquiry as well as the imagined geographies of those who inhabited the Latin, Greek, and Arabic worlds of the Middle Ages. These essays are unusual in the respect that they show for the alternate geographies of the Middle Ages even while embedding their analyses within contemporary geographical discourse.'
Patrick J. Geary - Institute for Advanced Study, Princeton
'This volume demonstrates clearly that geographical knowledge includes more than maps projected according to Ptolemaic theory and that medieval geographers working in the tradition of chorography produced work of significance. To limit geography to the Ptolemaic tradition is to miss out on a great deal of geographical knowledge.'
James Muldoon - The John Carter Brown Library
'… an interesting and unusual collection of studies … Highly recommended.'
G. J. Martin
'This collection will provide an invaluable gathering of current research, as well as a stimulating and demanding read for the broader range of scholars and students who wish to progress beyond the basic understandings of the ‘spatial turn’ to a broader understanding of medieval geographies.'
