Copper engraving, 58.5 x 50.5 cm, original hand-colour, including to the detailed German text of the key at the foot of the prospect, blank verso.
A map of Jersusalem and environs at the time of Christ, showing locations mentioned in the New Testament, including those which continued to be sites of Christian worship.
Seutter credits the Dutch Catholic theologian Christian Kruik van Adrichem, or Christianus Crucius Adrichomius, 1533-1585; his main source was probably the account of Jerusalem’s antiquities given in van Adrichem’s ‘Theatrum Terrae Sanctae et Biblicarum Historiarum’, published in Cologne in 1590.
