Viator offers a space for renewed attention to transcultural studies from late antiquity into early modernity, while continuing its long-standing tradition of publishing articles of distinction in the established fields of medieval and Renaissance studies. In keeping with its title, “traveler,” the journal gives special consideration to articles that cross frontiers, focus on meetings between cultures, pursue an idea through the centuries, or employ methods of different disciplines simultaneously, while remaining accessible to the non-specialist reader. We particularly welcome articles that look beyond Western Eurasia and North Africa and consider the history, literature, art, and thought of the eras of early global interconnection from broader perspectives.
Comitatus is a journal sponsored by CMRS-CEGS for and by graduate students and recent PhDs. Articles are published in any field of the Middle Ages or Renaissance. The annual journal is distributed internationally to libraries and individuals and is part of the Project MUSE online collection.
