Map of Jerusalem - the Center of the World in 1581
Is Jerusalem the Center of the Earth?

Heinrich Bunting's Brilliant Illustration of Jerusalem

In the year 1581, a protestant pastor and theologian from Germany by the name of Heinrich Bunting successfully created a book of woodcut maps. The book, entitled Itinerarium Sacrae Scripturae, became quite popular, as it provided one of the most comprehensive and detailed overviews of biblical geography available. Bunting's work facilitated a description of Israel and Jerusalem by following the travels of a variety of Old Testament and New Testament figures. Perhaps Bunting's most notable work took the form of a figurative map (shown below) in the shape of a clover leaf, in which he depicts Jerusalem as the center of the earth.
