Jerusalem, et Suburbia eius, 1588 From Civitates orbis terrarum: Liber quartus vrbium præcipuarum totius mundi, Cologne, Germany Ever in flux, Jerusalem has long been a cradle of history where each labyrinthine alley in its walled old city offers a new discovery—as true today as on this pictorial map depicting events from the time of Christ. Look closely and you'll find him in purple robes at points across the map: at the Last Supper, in the Garden of Gethsemane, carrying the cross on the Via Dolorosa, and at the site of crucifixion (then northwest of the city but well within the walls today). In all, more than 250 numbered scenes dot the topography of Jerusalem and its suburbs in this map reproduced for this 1,000-piece jigsaw puzzle.
