Bibliographical note

The article is of substantial length (14,998 words incl. notes, captions, and appendix). It introduces to scholarship an almost unknown map of the Holy Land which is closely related to a map at the British Library that was thought to be unique. The content, layout, and transmission context of the two maps is seen in relation to wider developments in Western manuscript production and learning. It argues that the manuscripts containing the maps are indicative of how topographical information concerning the Holy Land was put to use in biblical studies, and of how scholasticism could influence the ways in which Jerusalem was represented and perceived. In addition, I have co-edited the volume in which the article is published, and co-authored the introduction. This introduction also comprises a report on a co-organised display of manuscripts at the Bodleian Library, with a brief discussion of two maps which were little known so far. The volume was peer-reviewed and has been published in a respected series.
