Conceiving of translation as not just interlingual but also intercultural transfer allows us to shed light on the dynamics of dominance and the renegotiation of identities which occur when bodies of knowledge cross from one culture to another. 'Cultural translation' thus reveals a fruitful angle of approach of the global Middle Ages. Challenging the traditionally Eurocentric conception of medieval studies, the articles collected here explore the translation of medieval knowledge in the context of the greater Mediterranean, the near East, South and East Asia, and the Americas in the longue durée up to the digital age.
