Abstract

Rabbi Solomon of Troyes (c. 1030-1105) was the single most influential medieval interpreter of both the Hebrew Bible and the Babylonian Talmud. Maps and diagrams are found in his commentaries. The content and meaning of his maps are evaluated, with the object of integrating them into the history of medieval cartography, together with the maps by another commentator, Nicolas of Lyra. -J.C.Stone
