Twelve literary scholars and historians investigate the ways in which space and place are politically, religiously, and culturally inflected. Exploring medieval texts as diverse as Icelandic sagas, Ptolemy's Geography, and Mandeville's Travels, the contributors illustrate the intimate connection between geographical conceptions and the mastery of land, the assertion of doctrine, and the performance of sexuality.

"A radical, scholarly, surprising, wide-ranging, well-written, and remarkably consistent book. It is also one of the best recent testimonies to and examinations of the rich alterity of the medieval period."-Gillian R. Overing, Wake Forest University
