    Viator offers a space for renewed attention to transcultural studies from late antiquity into early modernity, while continuing its long-standing tradition of publishing articles of distinction in the established fields of medieval and Renaissance studies. In keeping with its title, "traveler," the journal gives special consideration to articles that cross frontiers, focus on meetings between cultures, pursue an idea through the centuries, or employ methods of different disciplines simultaneously, while remaining accessible to the non-specialist reader. We particularly welcome articles that look beyond Western Eurasia and North Africa and consider the history, literature, art, and thought of the eras of early global interconnection from broader perspectives.

    Viator publie des articles de qualité dans tous les domaines du Moyen Âge et de la Renaissance, vus comme la période située entre l’Antiquité Tardive et le milieu du XVIIe siècle. En accord avec son nom, la revue prend en compte des articles qui traversent les frontières : articles traitant de la rencontre des cultures, du suivi d’une idée au cours des siècles, et qui emploie simultanément des méthodes de disciplines différentes. Les articles, tous écrits en anglais, doivent atteindre un niveau technique excellent tout en étant accessible au non-spécialiste averti.
