Hereford Cathedral Map of the World

Post by FlatEarthFanatic on Sat Jul 08, 2017 1:11 am




This map of the world is very interesting, not only because is shows the earth as a circle, but because it shows Jerusalem as the centre.

The Wikipedia article gives some info on it here https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hereford_Mappa_Mundi
There is a very good key to the map.

BUT in the book I came across mentioning it, dragons and giants feature on the map (which Wikipedia conveniently leaves out). Showing also, an awareness of these in the middle ages. VERY interesting.

Here is the book https://ia801406.us.archive.org/9/items/thirteenthgreat00walsgoog/thirteenthgreat00walsgoog.pdf
The thirteenth greatest of centuries by walsh.
