    Aims and Scope

    The Travels of Sir John Mandeville describes the world of the Late Middle Ages and draws on a sophisticated blend of other texts containing traditional lore about foreign lands, peoples, and religions. The study explores the ways that foreign religions were presented in manuscripts and early printed books and analyzes the processes of semantization, valuation, and reflection that can generate an intriguing balance between self and otherness.
