Anne Juliana Gonzaga became a Servant of Mary following the death of her husband, Ferdinand II, Archduke of Austria in 1595, after receiving a vision of the Madonna, to whom her parents had prayed to cure her of a childhood illness? DESCRIPTION: This is the largest map of its kind to have survived in tact and in good condition from such an early period of cartography. These place names are in Lincolnshire (Holdingham and Sleaford are the modern forms), and this Richard has been identified as one Richard de Bello, prebend of Lafford in Lincoln Cathedral about the year 1283, who later became an official of the Bishop of Hereford, and in 1305 was appointed prebend of Norton in Hereford Cathedral. While the map was compiled in England, names and descriptions were written in Latin, with the Norman dialect of old French used for special entries.
Here, my dear Son, my bosom is whence you took flesh Here are my breasts from which you sought a Virgina€™s milk.
The other three figures consist of a woman placing a crown on the Virgin Mary and two angels on their knees in supplication. Still within this decorative border, in the left-hand bottom corner, the Roman Emperor Caesar Augustus is enthroned and crowned with a papal triple tiara and delivers a mandate with his seal attached, to three named commissioners. In the right-hand bottom corner an unidentified rider parades with a following forester holding a pair of greyhounds on a leash. The geographical form and content of the Hereford map is derived from the writings of Pliny, Solinus, Augustine, Strabo, Jerome, the Antonine Itinerary, St. As is traditional with the T-O design, there is the tripartite division of the known world into three continents: Europe, Asia, and Africa.
EUROPE: When we turn to this area of the Hereford map we would expect to find some evidence of more contemporary 13th century knowledge and geographic accuracy than was seen in Africa or Asia, and, to some limited extent, this theory is true. France, with the bordering regions of Holland and Belgium is called Gallia, and includes all of the land between the Rhine and the Pyrenees. Norway and Sweden are shown as a peninsula, divided by an arm of the sea, though their size and position are misrepresented. On the other side of Europe, Iceland, the Faeroes, and Ultima Tile are shown grouped together north of Norway, perhaps because the restricting circular limits of the map did not permit them to be shown at a more correct distance. The British Isles are drawn on a larger scale than the neighboring parts of the continent, and this representation is of special interest on account of its early date. On the Hereford map, the areas retain their Latin names, Britannia insula and Hibernia, Scotia, Wallia, and Cornubia, and are neatly divided, usually by rivers, into compartments, North and South Ireland, Wales, Cornwall, England, and Scotland.

Details from the Hereford map of the Blemyae and the Psilli.a€? Typical of the strange creatures or 'Wonders of the East' derived by Richard of Haldingham from classical sources and placed in Ethiopia. Equally important work was also being done on medieval and Renaissance world maps as a genre, particularly by medievalists such as Anna-Dorothee von den Brincken and Jorg-Geerd Arentzen in Germany and by Juergen Schulz, primarily an art historian, and David Woodward, a leading historian of cartography, in the United States.
The Hereford World Map is the only complete surviving English example of a type of map which was primarily a visualization of all branches of knowledge in a Christian framework and only secondly a geographical object. After the fall of the Roman empire in the 5th century, monks and scholars struggled desperately to preserve from destruction by pagan barbarians the flotsam and jetsam of classical history and learning; to consolidate them and to reconcile them with Christian teaching and biblical history. There would have been several models to choose from, corresponding to the widely differing cartographic traditions inside the Roman Empire, but it seems that the commonest image descended from a large map of the known world that was created for a portico lining the Via Flaminia near the Capitol in Rome during Christ's lifetime.
Recent writers such as Arentzen have suggested that, simply because of their sheer availability, from an early date different versions of this map may have been used to illustrate texts by scholars such as St. Eventually some of the information from the texts became incorporated into the maps themselves, though only sparingly at first. A broad similarity in coastlines with the Hereford map is clear in the Anglo-Saxon [Cottonian] World Map, c.1000 (#210), but there are no illustrations of animals other than the lion (top left). The resulting maps ranged widely in shape and appearance, some being circular, others square.
A few maps of the inhabited world were much more detailed, though keeping to the same broad structure and symbolism. Most of these earlier maps were book illustrations, none were particularly big and the maps were always considered to need textual amplification. From about 1100, however, we know from contemporary descriptions in chronicles and from the few surviving inventories that larger world maps were produced on parchment, cloth and as wall paintings for the adornment of audience chambers in palaces and castles as well as, probably, of altars in the side chapels of religious buildings.
A separate written text of an encyclopedic nature, probably written by the map's intellectual creator, however, was still intended to accompany many if not all these large maps and one may originally have accompanied the Hereford world map.
These maps seem largely to have been inspired by English scholars working at home or in Europe. The most striking novelty, however, was the vastly increased number of depictions of peoples, animals, and plants of the world copied from illustrations in contemporary handbooks on wildlife, commonly called bestiaries and herbals.
Mentions in contemporary records and chronicles, such as those of Matthew Paris, make it plain that these large world maps were once relatively common. At about the same time that this map was being created, Henry III, perhaps after consultation with Gervase, who had visited him in 1229, commissioned wall maps to hang in the audience chambers of his palaces in Winchester and Westminster. The Hereford Mappamundi is the only full size survivor of these magnificent, encyclopedic English-inspired maps. An inscription in Norman-French at the bottom left attributes the map to Richard of Haldingham and Sleaford. As an introduction, My work in this field began while I was still living in Nashville, Tennessee, right after the mass suicide of a group known as Heaven’s Gate in 1997. Before getting into some prominent Christian views, let’s see first what prominent non-Christian researchers and scientists have said about this phenomena over the years.
Let me say that for most Christians, whether God could have created life on other planets is not even a question a€“ ita€™s a non sequitur really a€“ nobody doubts that God can do whatever he wants to. This first point has been documented by Joe Jordan, who started as a MUFON researcher in 1992. So far you’ve seen the opinions of both a few Christian and a few non-Christian researchers, and you can take or leave their opinions as you will. So 50 years later, the entities now claim they originate from far more distant places in other star systems, like Zeta Reticuli which is 39 light years away, or even in other galaxies like Andromeda, which is 2.5 million light years away.
Now, their story has now changed to these far away places, in which we once again can’t verify their claims. As an introduction, secular researcher Thomas Bullard points out in the Encyclopedia of Extraterrestrial Encounters that there is a definitive common pattern to the classic abduction scenarios. Christians studied in occult religions may recognize this as a form of pantheism, teaching that we can become one with the Creator if we are one with them. One of today’s more infamous abductees is formerly know as Claude Vorilhom, but now goes by the name Rael.
This is a modern day false prophet, but his experiences, I believe, really happened to him. I lived in Roswell, NM for 11 years as a missionary, to present orthodox biblical views to those who go there with belief systems similar to what Ia€™ve been describing. Note the opening 2 minutes of a program that debuted in 2002, and still airs several times per year on the History Channel. Throughout the Bible mysterious aerial phenomena appear and alter the course of human history. My point is that it’s no longer direct contact with aliens, or participation in cult groups that leads people to embrace these ideas.
Today, what youa€™ll find most prevalent in much of the alien contact literature since the fifties, and now all over the web, is the claim that when you read the Bible, what youa€™re really reading about is primitive mana€™s interpretation of UFO technology. Inasmuch then as the children have partaken of flesh and blood, He Himself likewise shared in the same, that through death He might destroy him who had the power of death, that is, the devil, and release those who through fear of death were all their lifetime subject to bondage. So the essence of the struggle here is trying to reconcile the reality of alien encounters (generally speaking and the few fruitcakes and attention seekers aside, we believe that people genuinely are having these encounters), but we have to compare what is being told to people by the entities to what the Bible very clearly teaches. The common questions that Christians arrive at when they examine the documented teaching of aliens, are quite logically along the lines of,  a€?Why would authentic extraterrestrial biological entities travel 90 billion light years just to attack one specific religion? Now the Spirit speaketh expressly, that in the latter times some shall depart from the faith, giving heed to seducing spirits, and doctrines of devils. Putting this all too succinctly, many Christian researchers feel that the UFO phenomenon is a lying sign and wonder, and a powerful delusion, which will be embraced by those who refuse to believe the gospel. But the Bible says clearly, that it is only Jesus who saves, and that whoever shall call upon the name of the Lord will be saved!
Of course we know that The Bible says a great deal about the End of the Age, and the disasters that will come on the earth before Jesus Christa€™s return a€“ specifically in Matthew 24 and the Book of Revelation … just for starters. I’ve found over the years that whether or not God could have created life on other planets is not the question that usually needs to be asked. So I want to take a stab at honestly equipping you on what The Bible actually does say on this topic. We are to cast them down, and not let what we can imagine exalt itself against the knowledge of God, and His word. So I want to invite you to suspend what your own imagination, your own understanding, and what the spirit of this age and this world are actively suggesting to you about life on other planets.
There’s a couple of other places where I think God goes out of His way to state for us His intent. God says the stated intent of the stars and lights in the heavens, are to provide light on the earth, and to divide the seasons and the years. It is NOT that the Bible does not speak of sentient, intelligent life in the heavens, as some say… It is NOT that the Bible is totally silent, as some say. Revelation 12 makes clear that the current location of the fallen angels is in the locality of Earth – they are no longer in the higher heavens. As individuals, you and I can believe whatever we want; ita€™s arguably true that wea€™re all entitled to have our own personal opinions on some things. There is a bigger picture of why the Church’s answer to this question is so important. However, when myths and mis-truths are repeated often enough, they start to feel familiar, we start to believe them and base important decisions on them. When we feel overwhelmed, we tend to fall back on familiar and comfortable (but ineffective) ways of making decisions.

A juggler doesn’t really multi-task – he catches and throws the balls individually in rapid succession, i.e. Disciplining yourself means training yourself to act in a specific way, or to form a habit. On average, it takes 66 days to acquire a new habit (many self-help sources recommend 21 days, but modern science suggests it takes longer). Hence, recognize that willpower is a resource that gets used up, reserve it for what’s most important, and replenish it when it’s low. However, when we give time and focus to what matters, it takes time away from lesser priorities, and we automatically go out of balance. Allow yourself to get out of balance, and use infrequent counterbalancing to address other priorities. Develop self-awareness and don’t allow yourself to go out of balance for too long in any area without counterbalancing. Since none of us know our true limits, we don’t know what is really impossible or unrealistic.

The upper-left corner of the Hereford Map, showing north and east Asia (compare to the contents on Chart 3). 1), however, call attention to a remarkable degree of accuracy in the relationship of toponymsa€”for cities, rivers, and mountainsa€”both in EMM and in Hereford Map legends.A  On the Asia Minor littoral, for example, one passage in EMM links 39 place-names in a running series, 23 of which are found in Chart 4 (and visible, in almost exactly parallel order, on Fig. 5, above).A  Treating islands separately from the eartha€™s three a€?partsa€? follows the organizational style adopted by Isidore of Seville, Honorius Augustodunensis, and other medieval geographical authorities. Note Lincoln on its hill and Snowdon ('Snawdon'), Caernarvon and Conway in Wales, referring to the castles Edward I was building there when the map was being created. In England, a detailed study of its less obvious features, such as the sequences of its place names and some of its coastal outlines by G. The Psilli reputedly tested the virtue of their wives by exposing their children to serpents. The cumulative effect has been to enable us at last to evaluate the map in terms of its actual (largely non-geographical and not exclusively religious) purpose, the age in which it was created and in the context of the general development of European cartography.
The Old and New Testaments contained few doctrinal implications for geography, other than a bias in favor of an inhabited world consisting of three interlinked continents containing descendants of Noah's three sons. This now-lost map was referred to in some detail by a number of classical writers and it seems to have been created under the direction of Emperor Augustus's son-in-law, Vipsanius Agrippa (63-12 BC) for official purposes. As the centuries went by, more and more was included with references to places associated with events in classical history and legend (particularly fictionalized tales about Alexander the Great) and from biblical history with brief notes on and the very occasional illustration of natural history.
Note also the Roman provincial boundaries, the relative accuracy of the British coastlines (lower left) and the attention paid to the Balkans and Denmark, with which Saxon England had close contacts. Some, often oriented to the north, attempted to show the whole world in zones, with the inhabited earth occupying the zone between the equator and the frozen north. They were never intended to convey purely geographical information or to stand alone without explanatory text. Often a 'context' for them would have been provided by the other secular as well as religious surrounding decorations.
For many maps continued to be used primarily for educational, including theological, purposes.
They reached their fullest development in the thirteenth century when Englishmen like Roger Bacon, John of Holywood (Sacrobosco), Robert Grosseteste and Matthew Paris were playing an inordinately large part in creative geographical thinking in Europe.
In most, if not all of these maps, the strange peoples or 'Marvels of the East' are shown occupying Ethiopia on the right (southern) edge, as on the Hereford map. Exposure to light, fire, water, and religious bigotry or indifference over the centuries has, however, led to the destruction of most of them. Both are now lost but it seems quite likely that the so-called 'Psalter Map', produced in London in the early 1260s and now owned by the British Library, is a much reduced copy of the map that hung in Westminster Palace. Despite some broad similarities in arrangement and content, however, there are very considerable differences from the Ebstorf and the 'Westminster Palace' maps in details - like the precise location of wildlife, the portrayal of some coastlines and islands, or in the recent information incorporated. In fact, many theologians have historically argued that God could easily have created life on other planets, if He so chose. About one in forty, maybe one in fifty, have had an experience they identify as extra-terrestrial. Clark was a British science fiction author and inventor, who held degrees in both mathematics and physics. Jacques Vallee, one of the pioneers of secular UFO researchers, worked partly with the U.S.
When the biblical accounts of interactions with angels and fallen angels are compared to modern alien abduction case reports, it becomes clear that the abilities of fallen angels as described in the Bible can explain what abductees experience in their encounters.
But we’ve since sent probes and satellites there and found that these planets are hostile to supporting life a€“ at least the humanoid type of life they were claiming to be.
If a Christian pastor or researcher were to use that term to describe the alien abduction experience, it would be obvious that he was judging the entity, with a negative or derogatory connotation, as if he were intentionally labeling the entity as a false god. Expert, secular, PhD opinion… is that aliens are prepping people to accept the merging of politics, religion and money into a New Age system! Even my home planet Surak had problems way back in its past, and the Son of God was the person who was called on to help. The New Jerusalem will not orbit the planet, but will be the city (not a ship) on Earth, that Jesus Christ will reign from. It was the a€?aliensa€? that told him to write this book, and start this new religion, which today claims to have 55,000 members across the planet. Claims that the fire by day, cloud by night that Moses and the Israelites followed was really a UFO. Alien messages always undermine the singular most important tenet of Christianity, that Jesus Christ is God Himself Incarnate as man, or God in the flesh.
And the now extremely well-documented messages of beings claiming to be aliens repeatedly attack this doctrine, and claim that Jesus is not really God Incarnate, but is simply an advanced alien or half breed. Why do they make such a concentrated effort to convince people that Jesus Christ is not true Deity, or God Incarnate? Instead, to suit their own desires, they will gather around them a great number of teachers to say what their itching ears want to hear.
SOME powerful delusion, having global impact, with signs and wonders is exactly what Christians were warned 2,000 years ago to anticipate, as part of the final rise of the antichrist. Dr Mack is a Pulitzer Prize winning author, who, up until as his death, served as the Head of the Psychiatry Department at Harvard University School of Medicine. Mack, Karla Turner Phd, David Jacobs Phd, Budd Hopkins and many other prominent abduction researchers bears out that visions of the end of the world a€“ or at least some massive future apocalypse a€“ is one of if not THE major theme that abductees experience in their interactions with aliens. I just want to point out to you the documented fact that aliensa€™ messages routinely contradict the biblical messages of destruction and recreation of a New Heaven and a New Earth by God, and Jesusa€™ promise to save His followers from this judgment. As Christians, I simply think we have a responsibility to teach only what God’s Word does say, and nothing more. The only stated purpose of the stars is to give light to the Earth and to mark the seasons.
The Bible states that God populated the heavens with angels (hosts of heaven), and angels are not biological entities. The Bible exhorts us to speak sound doctrine, even though in the latter times many people will not endure sound doctrine.
He didn’t know that I was a closet abductee when I asked him, but his answer made all the difference in my life.
When you finally knock it over, the dominoes behind it would be ready to fall or have already fallen down. Take time out to prioritize and do what really matters – convert your to-do-list to a success list, by prioritizing the “should do” over “could do” items.
You just need to identify the right habit to cultivate, and have enough discipline to do it long enough to build that desired habit.
Trying to take a middle position means we make extraordinary commitments to nothing, hence achieve mediocre results on all fronts.

Flint, a€?The Hereford Map:A  Its Author(s), Two Scenes and a Border,a€? Transactions of the Royal Historical Society, 6th ser. Nevertheless, it placed a somewhat misleading emphasis on the map's geographical 'inaccuracies', its depiction of fabulous creatures and supposedly religious purpose, all clothed in what for the layman must have seemed an air of wildly esoteric learning and near-impenetrable medieval mystery. Recent research suggests this is a reference to African traders in medicinal drugs who visited ancient Rome. Today, with the map in the headlines of the popular press, it may be time to give a brief resume of what is currently known about it and to attempt to explain some of its more important features in the light of recent research. In the eyes of some (but by no means all) theologians, a fourth inhabited continent, the Antipodes, would implicitly have denied the descent of mankind from Noah, and the depiction of such a continent was deemed to be heretical by them. It was based on survey and on military itineraries and reflected the political and administrative realities of the time. Where space allowed, reference was also made to important contemporary towns, regions, and geographical features such as freshly-opened mountain passes.
Most of the maps, however, like the Hereford Mappamundi, depicted only that part of the world that was known in classical times to be inhabited and they were oriented with east at the top. Traces of the maps' classical origins could regularly be seen in, for instance, the continued depiction of the provincial boundaries of the Roman Empire (which are partly visible on the Hereford map) and for many centuries by the island of Delos which had been sacred to the early Greeks being the centre of the inhabited world.
They and the texts that they adorned continued to be copied by hand until late in the 15th century and are to be found in early printed books. God dominates the world and the 'Marvels of the East' occupy the lower right edge of the map, as they do on the Hereford map. Together they would have provided a propaganda backdrop for the public appearances of the ruler, ruling body, noble or cleric who had commissioned them, and some may have been able to stand alone as visual histories. The Hereford map, as an inscription at the lower left corner tells us, was certainly intended for use as a visual encyclopedia, to be 'heard, read and seen' by onlookers.

Because of the maps' size, they were able to include far more information and illustration than their predecessors.
More space was also found for current political references and information derived from contemporary military, religious and commercial itineraries.
Today, the earliest survivor, dating from the beginning of the thirteenth century, is a badly damaged example now in Vercelli Cathedral, probably having been brought to Italy in about 1219 by a papal legate returning from England. We know from Matthew Paris that the Westminster map was copied by others, and it is likely to have had a lasting influence even though the original was destroyed in 1265. A Latin legend in the bottom right corner of the Hereford map refers to the 5th century Christian propagandist Orosius as the main source for the map, but as we have already seen, it incorporates information from numerous ancient and thirteenth century sources and adds its own interpretations of them. The map is an outstanding example of a map type that had evolved over the preceding eight centuries. Their research has been documented in over a dozen books mostly by Christian authors, that there are hundreds of abduction experiences that have been stopped by using the name and authority of Jesus Christ. A Vision can affect one person or multiple people, though they may perceive it differently3. To sort of sum it up, let me submit to you the conclusions of some other well-known Christian authors who have studied this same material.
But when Bullard uses it here, hea€™s just very clinically noting that a spiritual, or religious, interpretation cannot be divorced from the encounters. This image is ETa€™s message in a nutshell, and what God has called my life to be dedicated to fighting. It is interesting how often contact with aliens results in instructions to the abductee or contactee to start a new religion. It’s a strong delusion, and these entities have found ambassadors that are all to willing to carry their message. Aliens routinely promise that THEY will deliver their believers from the disasters foretold in the End Times, in a variety of ways – including but not limited to cloning, reincarnation, or by lifting those who follow the aliens off the planet just in the nick of time. And unfortunately I think most of us just rest there, as if thata€™s a final answer to the question. As I said, in our own understanding, it’s quite reasonable to believe that maybe God did create life on other planets, and so many people in this world do believe as such. But I believe that if we acknowledge what God’s Word does say, trust that it is profitable for doctrine, and let Him renew our mind on this topic, then hopefully He can direct your path. Occasionally, it’s as if the Holy Spirit, through the human author, goes out of His way to explain something really important.
And you saw it, there is a list!If even part of Goda€™s purpose for creating the stars (and any other lights in the heavens) was to give light or warmth to people on other planets, or to be inhabited by other biological life, then while God was actually giving us a list of reasons why the stars were created, youa€™d think these purposes would have at least made the list.

Crone of the Royal Geographical Society, revealed that despite the antiquity of many of the map's sources much was almost contemporary with the map's creation and was secular.
Much of the text that follows is an amplification of information panels and leaflets prepared for the British Library's current display of the map. Most medieval mapmakers seem to have accepted this constraint, but world maps showing four continents are not uncommon: notably the world maps created by Beatus of Liebana (#207) in the late 8th century to illustrate his Commentary on the Apocalypse of St. It may have incorporated information from an earlier survey commissioned by Julius Caesar and, to judge from some early references, it may originally have shown four continents. These texts owed much to classical writers, particularly Pliny the Elder (23-79), who himself derived much of his information from still earlier writers such as the fifth century BC Greek historian Herodotus. As befitted the encyclopedic texts that they illustrated, the maps became visual encyclopedias of human and divine knowledge and not mere geographical maps. Many were purely schematic and symbolic, showing a T, representing the Mediterranean, the Don and the Nile, surrounded by an 0, for the great ocean encircling the world, sometimes with a fourth continent being added.
It was only from about 1120 that Jerusalem took Oclos' place as the focal point of the map, as it does on the Hereford Mappamundi. They retained and expanded the geographical and historical elements of the older maps - coastlines, layout and place names on the maps frequently reveal their ancestry - but to them they added several novel features.
Inscriptions of varying lengths amplified the pictures and sometimes contained references to their sources. Much better preserved, until its destruction in 1943, was the famous Ebstorf world map of about 1235. It is difficult to account otherwise for the striking similarities in detailed arrangement and content between the Psalter world map, the recently discovered 'Duchy of Cornwall' fragment (probably commissioned in about 1285 by a cousin of Edward I for his foundation, Ashridge College in Hertfordshire) and the Aslake world map fragments of about 1360.
In many of its details it particularly resembles the Anglo-Saxon World Map of about 1000 and the twelfth century Henry of Mainz world map in Corpus Christi College, Cambridge. Of the hundreds of cases the CE4 Research Group has worked with since 1997 who have been able to terminate the alien abduction experience in their life, over 95 former abductees have allowed them to share their personal testimonies on the CE4 Research Website. The Son of God is not a€?crucified afresha€? on planet after planet throughout millions of galaxies.
Claims that Jesus didna€™t so much a€?ascend into heavena€? after His resurrection, but rather that He was just beamed back up to the mother ship from which He came. I hope to equip you with the ability to speak from a truly sound understanding of what the Bible says on whether there’s life on other planets or not.
But when it comes to teaching, we are compelled and constricted to impart God’s word alone. It goes against the spirit and the wisdom of this age, I know, but God calls our wisdom foolishness (1 Cor 3:19). I feel ita€™s especially incumbent on Christian leadership a€“ pastors, elders, teachers a€“ to do so, because of what the New Testament warns about will be the extra-tough judgment on teachers. The reason this strong delusion is going to be effective to deceive the world is precisely because it makes so much sense – to worldy thinking. Crone points out that this reference has special significance because Augustus had also entrusted his son-in-law, M. Sometimes identified with Sirens, the mythical enchantresses along coasts of the Mediterranean, who lured sailors to destruction by their singing. Amazon means a€?without a breast,a€? according to tradition these women removed the right breast to use the bow.
At the right edge, a looping line shows the route of the wandering Israelites in their Exodus from Egypt; it crosses the Jordan to the left of a naked woman who looks over her shoulder at the sinking cities of Sodom and Gomorrah in the Dead Sea (she is Lot's wife, turned into a pillar of salt [A§254].
400), a text that was often attended during the Middle Ages by diagrammatic a€?mapsa€? illustrating the concept.A  See also David Woodward. Others delved into the question of its authorship, which had previously been assumed to be obvious from the wording on the map itself. The medievalized depiction on the bottom left corner of the Hereford world map of 'Caesar Augustus' commissioning a survey of the world from three surveyors representing the three corners of the world may be based on a muddled - and religiously acceptable - memory of these classical events.
Even though the inscriptions on the maps gradually became more and more garbled and the information more and more embellished, distorted, and misunderstood, they nevertheless retained their tenuous links with ancient learning.
More than simple geographical shorthand, such maps were also meant to symbolize the crucifixion, the descent of man from Noah's three sons and the ultimate triumph of Christianity. Palestine itself was usually enlarged far beyond what, on a modern map, would have been its actual proportions. A note on one of the most famous of them, the Ebstorf, says that it could be used for route planning.
Although the maps were still dominated by biblical and classical history and legend, most other information seems to have been acceptable and was accommodated within the traditional framework.
Far larger than the Hereford Word Map and much more colorful, it was probably created under the guidance of the itinerant English lawyer, teacher and diplomat, Gervase of Tilbury.
In transmission some facts and text became garbled and some inscriptions are gobbled gook or wrong. The story was of first contact with an extraterrestrial race, which happened through the means of a signal from aliens received by SETI.
For many people, this research actually settles the issue, proving that the experience is spiritual in nature, and not genuinely extra-terrestrial. I know it goes against our natural understanding of how things should be, but the things of God almost always do.
And remember, Jesus said that we would ALL be judged by every idle word that comes out of our mouths.
Polls from 50 years ago, did not even reflect that 1 in 10 people believed in life on other planets, much less that it was visiting us. Each time we switch tasks, we need to re-orientate to the “rules” for the new task, losing time and energy in the process. The circle one-third of the way from the bottom is Jerusalem, the Map's central point, with a crucifixion scene above it ([A§387-89]). Its images and decoration have been examined from a stylistic standpoint by Nigel Morgan and put into the context of their time, while the late Wilma George examined the animals in the light of her own zoological knowledge [2] The chance discoveries of fragments of other English medieval world maps in recent years [3] have expanded the context within which the Hereford World Map can be examined, and the Royal Academy exhibition, 'The Age of Chivalry' of 1987 enabled the map to be displayed in the company of other non-cartographic artifacts of its own time.
Generally, though, it was not difficult to adapt surviving copies of existing, secular world maps to suit the purposes of Christian writers from the 5th century onwards. This was in order to match its historical importance and to accommodate all the information that had to be conveyed.
Christ would, for instance, be shown dominating the world, or the world might even be depicted as the actual body of Christ. The world was shown as the body of Christ and much space was devoted to the political situation in northern Germany: an area of particular concern to the Duke who may have commissioned it.
I think ita€™s more in line with what God HAS expressed in scripture on this topic to at minimum say that a€?therea€™s nothing in the Bible that indicates there is life on other planetsa€? than to say a€?well maybe, because God can do anythinga€? a€“ thata€™s just natural thinking that doesna€™t reflect anything The Bible states about the purposes of the stars, planets and other lights in the heavens. Now polls reflect that 6 in 10 people do, with the 17-24 year old crowd having 7 in 10 who believe in life on other planets. Carte marine et portulan au XIIe siA?cle:A  Le Liber de existencia riveriarum et forma maris nostri Mediterranei.
The amount of space dedicated to the other parts of the world varied according to their traditional historical or biblical importance and the preoccupations of the author of the text that the map illustrated. Nor does it reflect the only thing the Bible does say about life God created in the heavens – that the host of heaven are angels.
Behind the blue band of the river is a grim array of grotesque figures to indicate the existence of primitive peoples. There may be significance in the soulless mermaid placed in the map close to the unattainable Holy Land, or she may be a possible temptation to sea-faring pilgrims.
Phillott, wrote that it shows a a€?rejection of all that savoured of scientific geography, .
Because of this, space devoted to the author or patron's homeland was often much exaggerated when judged by modern standards, as in the case of England, Wales and Ireland on the Hereford Mappa Mundi.
Crone demonstrated, the Hereford also contains sequences of the more important place names along some major thirteenth century commercial and pilgrimage routes.
A Vision can contain just about any landscape, or any sort of characters, and can seem to involve travel, even though the person doesna€™t actually go anywhere8.
On a world map, though, as opposed to the strip itinerary maps produced by Matthew Paris in about 1250, the route planning could only have been very approximate and very much incidental to the main purposes. 14), which may have resulted from the survey of the provinces ascribed by tradition to Julius Caesar. In the Hereford map they could revel in this pictorial description of the outside world, which taught natural history, classical legends, explained the winds and reinforced their religious beliefs. The two upright fingers branching up from the Mediterranean are the Aegean and the Black Sea with the Golden Fleece at its extremity.
