MEDIEVAL AND RENAISSANCE STUDIES
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.
We are pleased to announce that, beginning with vol. 51, Viator now publishes color images in every issue. Please refer to these guidelines when preparing your manuscript for submission.

Subscriptions to Viator (ISSN 0083-5897) are available as print only, print and online, and online only and can be ordered by writing to Brepols Publishers.
