about this item

"This collection offers a range of interdisciplinary viewpoints on the occupation of space and theories of place in Britain and Ireland spanning the medieval and early modern periods. The contributions are multi-faceted and consider space in both its physical and abstract sense, with essays exploring literature, history, art, manuscript studies, religion, geography and archaeology. Discussions of objects and considerations of place offer astute observations on social interaction, cultural memory, sacred space, the mind, time and community in the medieval and early modern period. The volume presents diverse ways of understanding the concept of space, with each contribution providing novel and insightful interpretations of this central theme"--Provided by publisher.
