Geographers have long realized that we all carry in our heads mental maps of the world, which influence to a surprising degree the way we live in it. This illustrated talk will explore the mental maps of medieval Christians through the great medieval Christian world maps, particularly the one which the Benedictine scholar, Ranulf Higden, of St Werburgh's Abbey Chester, included in his famous 14th-century world chronicle, the Polychronicon. Come prepared to think your way imaginatively into a very different worldview from our own -- a worldview which persisted basically unchanged from antiquity.
