Dr Arad will consider how circular maps of Jerusalem were made on the basis of a new genre of pilgrimage guides that appeared in the West in the first years of the century and will focus on the potential use of these maps as aids for conducting virtual pilgrimages to Jerusalem (when the concept and practice of virtual pilgrimage by means of visual imagery had not yet been developed in the West). She will also present the strategy by which these maps conceptualized the biblical landscape as a physical reflection of Christ’s life.
Dr Arad will also lead a workshop on Friday, October 30 at 11:00 a.m. via Zoom on the broader topic of “Medieval and Early Modern mapping of Jerusalem and the Holy Land.”
