Sinopsis: Filled with information and lore, mappae mundi presents 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. Thorough examination of literary, visual, oral and textual evidence places the Hereford mappa mundi and others like it (such as the Psalter Maps, the 'Sawley Map', and the Ebstorf Map) 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. The contents includes: Hereford map as conceptual device: Cosmological wheel, Frame as time, Medieval audience; Hereford map and worlds: Animals, Strange and monstrous races, Bible and crusades, Alexander; and Cartographic context. Naomi Reed Kline is Professor of Art History, at Plymouth State College.

Críticas: Enjoyable and radable... As well as historians of cartography, the work is intended for medievalists and art historians, who should find much to stimulate and interest them. LIBRARY (A) welcome addition to the new and growing literature on medieval maps. (.) A comprehensive guide to the vast amount of imagery on the map.(.) One of the book's strengths lies in Kline's sensitive reading of the map's visual imagery.(.) There is much here to recommend this work and on which to congratulate its author. As a reference tool it is invaluable. IMAGO MUNDI, vol. 56, 2004
