Medieval Voyaging Series

The Centre, in collaboration with Brepols Publishers (Belgium), sponsors two monograph series, Making the Middle Ages and Medieval Voyaging , for which Geraldine Barnes and Margaret Clunies Ross are co-editors.

Medieval Voyaging presents innovative research on voyages of body and mind from the early Middle Ages to 1500. The series focuses on physical metaphorical travel in literary, historical, and geographical, texts and images. It explores intellectual mappings and encounters, as well as the actual and imagined voyages of discovery, settlement, pilgrimage, and engagement with the Other, which constructed the earthly and spiritual landscape of medieval cosmography.

Volume 1 of this new series, Rita George-Tvrtkovic's A Christian Pilgrim in Medieval Iraq : Riccoldo da Montecroce┬╣s Encounter with Islam will appear in late 2011 or early 2012.

Expressions of interest in publishing in the series are welcome and may be addressed to either co-editor.
