This is one of ten maps in Bünting's Itinerarium, in which the author, a theological commentator, rewrote the Bible as an illustrated travel book. Other maps in the series bear out his imaginative approach to cartography, which pictures the World in the form of a cloverleaf, Europe as the Queen of the World, and Asia as Pegasus.
