Viator

MEDIEVAL AND RENAISSANCE STUDIES

Viator offers a space for renewed attention to the global long Middle Ages, viewed broadly as the period 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, focusing on meetings between cultures, pursuing an idea through the centuries, or employing 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 medieval and Renaissance periods from a global perspective.
