An excellent woodcut map featuring Heinrich Bünting’s unusual account of the travels of most of the principal figures of the New Testament.
St. Paul was as an apostle — though not one of the Twelve Apostles) — who taught the gospel of Christ to the 1st-century world. He is generally considered one of the most important figures of the Apostolic Age. In the mid-30s to the mid-50s AD, he founded several churches in Asia Minor and Europe.
St. Paul spent most of his life on missionary journeys, spreading the teachings of Christ and the word of God. This map does a fine job bringing this biblical history to life, in a comprehensive fashion. It covers the region traversed by St. Paul from Jerusalem to Rome, extending from Rome and southern Italy eastwards to show Turkey, Armenia, Cyprus and the Holy Land. Greece is also shown, as are the southern shores of the Black Sea.
Major towns and cities are named while sea monsters populate the Mediterranean Sea.
