The Location of Jerusalem

Standard

Read another chapter from my manuscript. The extract called “The Location of Jerusalem on European Mind Maps” tells about the paramount importance of the Holy City for Christendom, especially from the Crusade era. All observers agreed that it was the world’s spiritual center but many also claimed that it was the geographical middle point of the earth. https://scriggler.com/DetailPost/Opinion/35570

This is my latest chapter on the scriggler. You can also get familiar with the other extracts from my second manuscript, “The Enchanting Encounter with the East”, on my profile page https://scriggler.com/Profile/michael_baizerman

(six headlines from the above) as well as view pages from my book, Dawn and Sunset, and about the ancient Israel. You are also invited to make comments.

 

Medieval geography

Standard

I have just uploaded a new chapter of my study about the revival of geographical knowledge in medieval Europe. It can be viewed at https://www.academia.edu/12542770/The_Breadth_of_the_Ocean_Sea_and_the_Prospects_of_Navigation
Together with the previously uploaded parts

https://www.academia.edu/12064184/What_is_the_Size_of_the_Inhabited_World
these four articles cover Unit I of my second project. The Unit’s title is “The Miraculous Revival or the Painful Recovery”. It is devoted to diverse aspects of mathematical geography as they were discovered by medieval scholars including the prospects of navigation through the world ocean.
I would be very grateful to have your comments.
