Ostensibly written by an English knight, the Travels purport to relate his experiences in the Holy Land, Egypt, India and China. Mandeville claims to have served in the Great Khan's army, and to have travelled in 'the lands beyond' - countries populated by dog-headed men, cannibals, Amazons and Pygmies. Although Marco Polo's slightly earlier narrative ultimately proved more factually accurate, Mandeville's was widely known, used by Columbus, Leonardo da Vinci and Martin Frobisher, and inspiring writers as diverse as Swift, Defoe and Coleridge. This intriguing blend of fact, exaggeration and absurdity offers both fascinating insight into and subtle criticism of fourteenth-century conceptions of the world.

What does it mean, and what should it mean to be human? In this collection of essays, scholars place the philosophies and theories of animal studies and posthumanism into conversation with biblical studies. Authors cross and disrupt boundaries and categories through close readings of stories where the human body is invaded, possessed, or driven mad. Articles explore the ethics of the human use of animals and the biblical contributions to the question. Other essays use the image of lions—animals that appear not only in the wild, but also in the Bible, ancient Near Eastern texts, and philosophy—to illustrate the potential these theories present for students of the Bible. Contributors George Aichele, Denise Kimber Buell, Benjamin H. Dunning, Heidi Epstein, Rhiannon Graybill, Jennifer L. Koosed, Eric Daryl Meyer, Stephen D. Moore, Hugh Pyper, Robert Paul Seesengood, Yvonne Sherwood, Ken Stone, and Hannah M. Strømmen present an open invitation for further work in the field of posthumanism. Features: Coverage of texts that explore the boundaries between animal, human, and divinity Discussion of the term posthumanism and how it applies to biblical studies Essays engage Derrida, Foucault, Wolfe, Lacan, Žižek, Singer, Haraway, and others

On the edge of medieval maps, monsters roam. In the west, pilgrims take well-traveled roads to Rome and Compostela. In the east, Old Testament history unfolds. And at the center, in the city of Jerusalem, Jesus saves the world. In A World Transformed, Lisa Deam takes us on an incredible journey through medieval maps. Despite their curious appearance, these maps, as Deam shows, are surprisingly modern. In their monstrous, marvelous sights lie treasure troves of wisdom to guide twenty-first-century Christians on their walk with God. Each chapter in this geographical journey links medieval maps to biblical concepts and spiritual practices that transform our faith and our world.

When it was first published in 1891, this edition of Sir Philip Sidney's Apologie for Poetrie (or the Defense of Poetry) represented a clear departure from previous editions. The Cambridge Fellow and classical scholar Evelyn S. Shuckburgh set to the task of correcting the numerous errors and alterations which had accumulated over the course of many previous editions, beginning with the folio version of 1598. Shuckburgh's text draws from the collation of seven earlier editions, giving precedence to the first printing of 1595 for which he consulted the copy held in the British Museum. The result is a precise and thorough text, complete with notes, a glossarial index and an introductory description of Sidney's life and works.
