The history of the mapping of the Holy Land epitomizes the history of cartography itself. Situated at the crossroads of Africa, Asia, and Europe, the Holy Land has been the focus of intense interest for countless generations; under its various names - Canaan, The Promised Land, Palestine, or Terra Sancta - it evinces the longest unbroken sequence of mapping in the world. Two principal cartographic traditions dominate this fascinating history: the religious one, based primarily on the Bible and its exegeses; and the classical tradition, represented by Ptolemy, which laid the foundations of modern cartography. The present volume brings together for the first time a historical panorama of these maps: from a 6th-century mosaic from Jordan; through early Hebrew, Christian, and Islamic maps; to maps of the recent past. We see the 13th-century Hereford World Map, with Jerusalem at its center, and the 14th-century Catalan Atlas, drawn on vellum. Anonymous Czech and Italian maps of the 16th century are followed by German, Netherlandish, British, and French maps from the Age of Enlightenment. We arrive ultimately at cartographic representations of the 19th and 20th centuries, culminating in the advent of high-tech satellite imaging. These graphic representations manifest the geographical and political changes that have marked this region over the centuries, suggesting at one time physical realities, and at another the persistence of imagination in its creative shaping of the world. Evidenced throughout, Holy Land in Maps is a testament to the painstaking craftsmanship and often delicate beauty that is a hallmark of the mapmaker's discipline at its best.

This book offers a way of reading maps of the Holy Land as visual imagery with religious connotations. Through a corpus of representative examples created between the sixth and the nineteenth centuries, it studies the maps as iconic imagery of an iconic landscape and analyses their strategies to manifest the spiritual quality of the biblical topography, to support religious tenets, and to construct and preserve cultural memory. Maps of the Holy Land have thus far been studied with methodologies such as cartography and historical geography, while the main question addressed was the reliability of the maps as cartographic documents. Through another perspective and using the methodology of visual studies, this book reveals that maps of the Holy Land constructed religious messages and were significant instruments through which different Christian cultures (Byzantine, Catholic, Protestant, and Greek Orthodox) shaped their religious identities. It does not seek to ascertain how the maps delivered geographical information, but rather how they utilized the geographical information in formulating religious and cultural values.00Through its examination of maps of the Holy Land, this book thus explores both Christian visual culture and Christian spirituality throughout the centuries.

The book presents and discusses a large corpus of Jewish maps of the Holy Land that were drawn by Jewish scholars from the 11th to the 20th century, and thus fills a significant lacuna both in the history of cartography and in Jewish studies. The maps depict the biblical borders of the Holy Land, the allotments of the tribes, and the forty years of wanderings in the desert. Most of these maps are in Hebrew although there are several in Yiddish, Ladino and in European languages. The book focuses on four aspects: it presents an up-to-date corpus of known maps of various types and genres; it suggests a classification of these maps according to their source, shape and content; it presents and analyses the main topics that were depicted in the maps; and it puts the maps in their historical and cultural contexts, both within the Jewish world and the sphere of European cartography of their time. The book is an innovative contribution to the fields of history of cartography and Jewish studies. It is written for both professional readers and the general public. The Hebrew edition (2014), won the Izhak Ben-Zvi Prize.
