Article descriptionOriginal copper engraving, published 1612 in the famous historical atlas "Parergon" (Latin text-edition) by Abraham Ortelius. Finely later hand colored in wash and outline. A highly decorative map showing the travels of St. Paul in the Mediterrean. Decorated with two oval historical engraved scenes from the travels of St. Paul. The map is equipped with two sailing ships, a speer fish and a sea monster in the Mediterranean Sea. Engraved place names and towns are shown as miniature views, rivers and mountains are engraved, too. The bottom of the map contains a large text chapter in three lines: the fifth chapter of the Second Epistle to the Corinthians in the New Testament of the Christian Bible. It is authored by Paul the Apostle and Saint Timothy (2 Corinthians 5). The map was published for the first time in 1579 in the edition of the ,Theatrum Orbis Terrarum' and was published until 1624 in the atlas ,Parergon' by A. Ortelius. This is the first state of two, published 1612 with Latin text verso. The 1st state can be identified that the word ,Corographicus' has yet not been corrected to ,Chorographicus' and that the stippling around the sea names has not been added.
