ABOUT

A companion to the journal Viator, Cursor Mundi is a book series consisting of inter- and multidisciplinary studies of the medieval and early modern world, viewed broadly as the period from Late Antiquity into early modernity. Cursor Mundi means 'Runner of the World' and welcomes investigations that similarly range across early global circuits. Like Viator, Cursor Mundi brings together outstanding work by scholars of the medieval, Renaissance, and early modern periods from a wide range of disciplines, emphasizing studies that focus on such processes as cultural exchange or the course of an idea through the centuries. Cursor Mundi volumes are generally single-authored books of at least 90,000 words or multiauthored collections such as groups of articles on a well-defined topic. The series also includes shorter studies of about 40,000 words by distinguished scholars on topics of broad interest.
