Alexander’s Gate (1)

Standard

I have started another research connected to my second project. It is devoted to legends about the East which were influential in the Latin West throughout the Middle Ages. This time I am looking for Alexander’s Gate, Gog-Magog, and Enclosed Nations. Though well-researched, this topic deserves another attempt as the motivation to travel to and study about the East was warmed up by the circulation of certain tales. I will also delve into mappaemundi-a parallel world of medieval knowledge.
