Analysis of Long Distance Travelers

Take up one of the many topics we have discussed in the reading of the long-distance travelers: perceptions of religion, morality, travel methods, divination, interpreting and translating, or others. Gather together as many examples from the texts we've read as possible and write an essay describing what these examples say about medieval perceptions of distant places.  If there are patterns or particular themes within your examples, use those to structure you argument.
