Dean's Seminar - Mapping the Religious Mind: India and the Medieval Geography of Religion

Speakers
Dr Alessandro Scafi, Lecturer in Medieval and Renaissance Cultural History, Warburg Institute.

Description
Religion and geography intersect and interact, particularly in the context of medieval cartography. India was represented on medieval world maps as a country of wisdom and a land of opulence but its depiction has to be seen within the wider context of the Christian vision of history.
