The interdisciplinary and international affiliations of the contributors to "Travels and Travelogues in the Middle Ages" correspond to the collection's eclectic approach to the field of medieval travel literature. The sampling of travelers and authors studied herein include Marco Polo, Odoric of Pordenome, Margery Kempe, and Benedict of Poland; lands visited and imagined in their works range from Italy to Song dynasty China, from Mongolia to the Arabian desert, and even to the fictional realm of hell as it was imagined in the Middle Ages. The multiplicity of terrains, both literary and geographic, covered in this volume draw upon medieval and current concepts of iconography, ethnography, and the relation of self to other, conveying a broad cultural-historical critical sensibility that will appeal to scholars of medieval religion, philosophical, literature, and art history.
