Orient is a city in Franklin County, Illinois, United States. As of the 2010 census, the city population was 358, up from 296 at the 2000 census. Orient is located in southern Franklin County at 37°55′8″N 88°58′34″W, 3. 1889°N 8. 7611°W (3. 18839, -8. 75973). It is 4 miles (6 km) northwest of West Frankfort.
The book itself is structured around a series of textual case studies, "geographically defined as material produced or disseminated in Wales, whether in Latin or Welsh" (xxv) in the twelfth and thirteenth centuries that focus in some way on the Orient. The introduction also provides a brief overview of medieval T-O maps and the manifestations of this concept in medieval historical and geographical understanding of the world.

In the meticulously researched Dante and the Orient, Schildgen argues that Dante's treatment of the East enabled him to use the rhetoric employed in crusade narratives and other travel literature to oppose the military and polemic goals of the Crusades and to plead for the reformation of both church and state.
Schildgen asserts Dante's knowledge of the East by detailing his grasp of empirical geography and mapmaking, which were consistent with the current theories of the thirteenth and fourteenth centuries. But Dante thwarts cartographical traditions and the conventions of the crusade narrative by substituting a metaphorical journey for a literal pilgrimage, thereby shifting the emphasis away from the material sight of scriptural places used in other crusade and pilgrimage narratives.
Blending sound historical research with innovative contemporary thought, Schildgen illustrates how Dante's unique adoption of crusade rhetoric grants him the role of prophet. Mindful of the lands beyond European bordersÐ-but without "orientalizing" or "exoticizing" themÐ-he questions the concept of salvation outside Christian lands and launches a fiery poetic missive at a crisis-ridden and decadent Latin world that does not live up to its proclaimed ideals. In Dante's keen regard for the East, its wonders become symbols for the grandeur of God and the beauty of the divine realm.
