Programm und Ankündigung in H/Soz/Kult

For historians studying the medieval Holy Land, Burchard of Mount Sion’s Descriptio Terre Sancte, dated to the 1280s, hardly needs an introduction. Burchard’s detailed and systematic description of a great number of sites, as well as his treatment of topics like the populations that inhabit this territory, make it an invaluable source for scholars working in a wide range of fields. The workshop is meant to study unexplored questions related to the Descriptio and its development and reception.
