The Paper will be devoted to a twelfth-century map of Jerusalem which constitutes the earliest surviving English example of a set of medieval maps of the city. As far as I am aware, this map has not been published or analysed as yet. The paper will address questions of origin and date, it will discuss how it relates to other maps, and the extent to which its design and inscriptions are unique. Particular attention will be given to the manuscript context in which it appears.

This talk is part of the Medieval Art Seminar Series series.
