In the last two decades, research on spatial paradigms and practices has gained momentum across disciplines and periods, including the field of medieval studies. Responding to this ‘spatial turn’ in the humanities, the essays collected here generate new ideas about how medieval space was defined, constructed, and practiced in Europe, particularly in France.The resulting collection builds on existing scholarship but brings new insight, situating medieval constructions of space in relation to contemporary conceptions of the subject.
