A group of papers deals with changes in the intellectual landscape during this period. Other papers focus particularly on the theme of jurisdiction, while a third groups deals with knowledge and its uses.

Going among the infidels: the mendicant orders and Louis IX's first Mediterranean campaign. The relationship between Louis IX of France and the mendicant orders is well known.
Yet it has generally been studied in order to shed light on Louis' reign rather than on the development of the orders. Contemporaries tended to criticize friars who worked too closely with secular authorities and their suspicions have passed into the historiography. This means that we know less than we might about how friars created and used opportunities to carry out their mission in the wider world. This article considers how Louis and members of the religious orders worked together during his crusade of —54 to bring about the conversion to Christianity of Muslims and Mongols.
It looks at the ways in which they drew on ideas of the apostolic life and wider papal agendas, but also employed standard strategies of diplomacy and debate, seizing on a range of opportunities as they arose.

The famous image of Francis of Assisi holding up the falling Church has come to symbolise the nature of the relationship between the Franciscans and the papacy in the thirteenth century. Deliberately manufactured by Franciscan propagandists at a time when they were becoming indispensable in almost every area of Christian activity, it represented a complex set of ideas about medieval spirituality, power and responsibility.
This article investigates the ideals, concerns and ambitions of the order through examination of a number of occasions on which prominent Franciscans offered criticism and advice to the papal curia. In the process, light is shed on the anxieties of Christendom in an age of crisis.
Infideles in the Opus maius of Roger Bacon. Travel and Travellers from Bede to Dampier. The essays in this collection -- a selection of papers presented at the University of Sydney Centre for Medieval Studies workshop, Travel and Cartography from Bede to the Enlightenment August , track a variety of travel narratives from the eighth century to the eighteenth.
Their voyages, which extend from from the literal to the spiritual, the political, and the artistic, show how the concept of narrative mapping has changed over time, and how it encompasses cosmogony, geography, chorography, topography, and inventory. Each essay is concerned in some way with the application of the medieval geographical imagination, or with the enduring influence of that imagination upon post-medieval travel and discovery writing.
This book will be of interest to undergraduate and postgraduate university students and to a broad range of academics across the disciplines of literature and history.
It will be of particular interest to medievalists and scholars of the early modern period and to readers of, the new scholarly journal, Studies in Travel Writing. The volume will also appeal to a more general, informed readership interested in the history of travel and the history of ideas, early contact with indigenous people, and encounters between East and West.
