The Martin Waldseemüller map, Universalis cosmographia secundum Ptholomæi traditionem et Americi Vespucii alioru[m]que lustrationes (1507), is the property of the Library of Congress, Geography and Map Division. The high-resolution scan used for this site is licensed for education and research purposes.


We have plotted our maps using the Neatline exhibit builder within the framkework of the Omeka platform.



The Italian text of the Orlando Furioso that we have used is a digitized version of Cesare Segre's critical edition (1960). It is made available by IntraText Digital Library on a creative commons license.


The English translation (also made available by IntraText Digital Library) is by William Stewart Rose (London, 1910).



This project was made possible by funding from Digital Learning at Muhlenberg, thanks to the support of Associate Dean for Digital Learning, Prof. Lora Taub-Pervizpour. Thanks also to the Office of the Provost for their funding of the student Research Assistants, without whom this project would be impossible.
