Genuine antique
dated:

1579

Description:

Map of St Paul’s travels as described by Saint Luke by Abraham Ortelius.

Translation of the title;

“A chorographical map of divine Paulus’ peregrination, based on the the first history of the apostles of the new testament, as described by Saint Luke, on which are displayed, for your eyes to behold, all geographical places”.

Second state of the earliest issue of this map. In all there were three states printed by Ortelius in the year 1579. The top left oval contains an image of the conversion of Saulus on his way to Damascus. At top right Paulus is shown being shipwrecked on the coast of Malta. This 2nd state is identified by the following Latin text on verso, page numer is 9 and the last line of text, is centred like the line above it: ‘rit, aliquando tentare non denegamus’.

Aditionally between 1587 and 1592, Ortelius revised the entire plate and place names such as ‘Phestia’ on the South coast of Crete for example, were changed to ‘Phestu’.

Mapmaker:

Abraham Ortelius (1527 –1598)

A Flemish cartographer and geographer, conventionally recognized as the creator of the first modern atlas, the Theatrum Orbis Terrarum (Theatre of the World). He is also believed to be the first person to imagine that the continents were joined together before drifting to their present positions.
