Abstract

[Autom. eng. transl.] Through the analysis of some of the main travel memories of the time, the contribution intends to deepen the function that this land, together with the many other "(in) cognite" regions explored in that period, played in the political and cultural history of encounter between West and East. The focus will be on the relationship that arose between travelers and explorers and Transjordan during the nineteenth century. The purpose is twofold. On the one hand, it is proposed to define the reasons and objectives that led to visit this territory, contributing to the progressive accumulation of both theoretical and practical "knowledge". In doing so, the analysis intends to establish a sort of periodization in the history of these companies, also highlighting the support network that allowed their realization. On the other hand, this brief reconstruction also provides an opportunity to highlight the impact that this knowledge had on the history of the founding of the Emirate of Transjordan.
