Europe and the Mediterranean

Between the 13th and the 14th to talk about Europe and the Mediterranean meant talking about the entire known world. Ramon Llull, a tireless traveller, visited and lived in several cities of the south of Europe, as well as the Mediterranean coasts of Africa an Asia Minor. His travel objectives were diverse: pilgrimage, seeking support from popes and royals for his missionary project and put into practice his preaching dialectics. This “Catalan from Mallorca” (as he liked to call himself) travelled almost all over the world, always with his books and without stopping writing. His habit of writing down in his books the date and place where he finished them has allowed the scholars to trace (with some gaps) the itineraries of the “Doctor Illuminatus”.
