Summary/Abstract: This study explores the ways in which Southeastern Europe was cartographically framed during the Renaissance, contributing visually to the shaping of a geographical imaginary. Trends and patterns highlighted point at the canonization of a frame, derived from Ptolemy’s Geography, which, despite its persistence, struggled to accommodate a stable modern regional layout. Rooted in different geographical, political and cultural views of the area, departing models instead responded to alternative, and sometimes conflicting, strategies of representation.
