Abstract: From chapter 34 to chapter 40 of Book 1 of his Topographia Hiberniae, Giraldus Cambrensis compared Ireland with the East mainly with regard to the climate, describing the latter as a most unpleasant and unhealthy place to live in. The East described in the Topographia seems full of malice in many ways when compared with that portrayed in other works written in the Middle Ages, where it is also depicted favorably since some people believed that it was closer to Paradise. Did Giraldus speak so ill of the East because he detested it? It seems likely that by contrasting Ireland with the East, he only tried, wittingly, to mock 'The Marvels of the East' (which was very well known all through the Middle Ages) and to compose 'The Marvels of the West' in order to highlight the wonderfully mild climate of Ireland which, as the author wrote, is situated at the westernmost end of the most western islands of Europe.
