FEATURED OBJECTMap of the world from Psalter 'The Map Psalter'
In this remarkably detailed 13th century map of the world – known as ‘The Map Psalter’ – we can see a drawing of a blessing Christ with two censing angels on either side. Jerusalem is depicted at the centre of the world, the Red Sea is coloured in red and rivers, including the Ganges and Danube, are coloured in blue. At the lower right-hand side are depictions of mythical races and marvels, whilst the British Isles can be seen at the lower left-hand side of the image.
