Filled with information and lore, mappae mundi present an encyclopaedic panorama of the conceptual "landscape" of the middle ages. Previously objects of study for cartographers and geographers, the value of medieval maps to scholars in other fields is now recognised and this book, written from an art historical perspective, illuminates the medieval view of the world represented in a group of maps of c.1300. Naomi Kline's detailed examination of the literary, visual, oral and textual evidence of the Hereford mappa mundi and others like it, such as the Psalter Maps, the '"Sawley Map", and the Ebstorf Map, places them within the larger context of medieval art and intellectual history.
The mappa mundi in Hereford cathedral is at the heart of this study: it has more than one thousand texts and images of geographical subjects, monuments, animals, plants, peoples, biblical sites and incidents, legendary material, historical information and much more; distinctions between "real" and "fantastic" are fluid; time and space are telescoped, presenting past, present, and future. Naomi Kline provides, for the first time, a full and detailed analysis of the images and texts of the Hereford map which, thus deciphered, allow comparison with related mappae mundi as well as with other texts and images.

Review:

Fascinating for anyone interested in mediæval thought and a must for those with an interest in the fabulous lands and creatures of the Middle Ages. --Fortean Times

An ambitious and generally highly satisfactory attempt to "look" at the map from every angle. --Church Times

Sets out to determine how the great map was perceived by contemporaries.. This required a very wide range of scholarly knowledge in related fields, and Kline's erudition in that respect is impressive. This book portrays that [medieval] mindset, like a rich tapestry, with depth and colour. --History
