Da sacralidade à centralidade : breve análise comparatista acerca das representações cartográficas da cidade de Jerusalém nos mapas-múndi medievais do século XIII
AbstractRefuting – by ignorance or by mere lack of interest – a considerable part of the configuration of the physical world, medieval cartography kept a close eye to a reality that often used to transcend the domains of real Geography. Even possessing important and valuable instruments - thought still distant from the actual functions recognized of the imagines mundi - medieval mapa-mundi took part of a complex artistic and cultural context which determinate their conception and meaning. Considering the syncretic nature of this cartography, the representation of biblical, historical and fantastic entities in a same space was a common procedure, even contemplating a possible lack of historical linearity between them. In this way, considering their specific status, the present study is based on a comparison between three XIII century manuscripts: the Ebstorf (1236), the Psalter (c. 1265) and the Hereford (c. 1290) maps. The conception of these manuscripts shows an evident continuation of the cosmological models conceived in the early Middle Ages, which allow us, nowadays, to establish a comparison between some iconographic and symbolical elements conveyed in the different forms of the Jerusalem depictions.
