Summary
"With a specific focus on travel narratives, this collection looks at how Islamic and eastern cultural threads were weaved, through travel and trading networks, into Western European/Christian visual culture and discourse and, ultimately, into the artistic explosion which has been labeled the "Renaissance." Scholars from across humanities disciplines examine Islamic, Jewish, Spanish, Italian, and English works from a truly comparative and non-parochial perspective to explore the transfer through travel of cultural and religious values and artistic and scientific practices, from the eleventh to the seventeenth centuries. During this period, travel, military conquest, and trade through the Mediterranean placed Western European citizens and merchants in contact with Islamic and eastern technology and culture. Travel narratives illustrate the converging and pragmatic dynamics of cultural acceptance." --
