College involvement in a Digital Library of Holy Land Maps

The National Library of Israel has created a centralized web platform for maps of the Holy land from throughout the world.  The core of the collection is the Library’s own Eran Laor Cartographic Collection of antique and modern maps of the Holy Land, but over one hundred significant additions have been made through collaboration with libraries in Europe and the United States.  Corpus Library has contributed images of MS 2*, a 12th century draft map of Palestine in the hand of the chronicler Matthew Paris, and Rashi’s map of Canaan from an early 13th century copy of Rashi’s commentary on the Old Testament (MS 6 fol. 59a).

 

The digital Eran Laor Cartographic Collection is available online in Hebrew and English:
