Viator Studies of the Medieval and Early Modern World
Conceived as a companion to the journal Viator: Medieval and Renaissance Studies, Cursor Mundi is a publication series of inter- and multi-disciplinary studies of the medieval and early modern world, viewed broadly as the period between late antiquity and the Enlightenment. Like Viator, Cursor Mundi brings together outstanding work by medieval and early modern scholars from a wide range of disciplines, emphasizing studies which focus on processes such as cultural exchange or the course of an idea through the centuries, and including investigations beyond the traditional boundaries of Europe and the Mediterranean. Individual entries will generally be substantial single-authored books of at least 90,000 words in length, or multi-authored collections such as Festschriften or groups of articles on a common subject. The series will also include shorter studies, ca. 40,000 words in length, by distinguished scholars on topics of broad interest. Cursor Mundi is published by Brepols Publishers under the auspices of the UCLA Center for Medieval and Renaissance Studies.
