Collective work of contrastive lexicography that brings together thirteen essays by outstanding mediaeval scholars from the Iberian peninsula which study the landscape (in a broad sense) and the words ‒mainly Latin, but also Romance‒, that describe it from different mediaeval Latin sources from Spain.
This volume brings together 13 studies in contrastive lexicography by specialists of the Latin Middle Ages and of mediaeval lexicography in the Iberian world. All of these contributions focus on one thematic connection: the landscape on the one hand, and the Latin (and Romance) words that describe it on the other. This thematic connection is investigated from various points of view, and on the basis of various mediaeval Latin sources from Spain: the charters from Asturias-León, Navarre, Catalonia, etc., the Papal Bulls for Spanish institutions, and a number of other specific works. The term ‘landscape’ is defined broadly: it can be territory, in the sense of a political area but also of a natural or geographical space; it can be a place that belongs to someone and that may have been enclosed or demarcated in some way; it can be a rural area or an urban space; furthermore, it can be the space perceived or subjectively felt by those who live in it or look at it; in this landscape, the labour, economic activities, constructions or destructive practices of man can be present, moulding and transforming it; moreover, the term ‘landscape’ implies observation, and this indeed is what all the contributors have done: they have examined in detail the space that was pictured in words in the mediaeval Latin sources from Spain, as well as the very words by which this is done. Thus, this collective volume aims to contribute to a better knowledge of the mediaeval Latin (and Romance) vocabulary, and to a closer acquaintance with the mediaeval landscape, through the (sometimes evasive) words and concepts that name it.
