4.0 out of 5 stars Maps of Paradise, 19 Dec 2013
This review is from: Maps of Paradise (Hardcover)
With Paradise being potentially everywhere and nowhere, mapping it is an undeniably difficult business but such problems of logic and metaphysics certainly haven't dissuaded people from trying. As Alessandro Scafi discusses in Maps of Paradise, for something over two centuries learned Christians have been attempting to pinpoint the earthly location of Biblical Paradise and, since approximately the 8th century, they have done so by creating ever more splendid maps. Maps of Paradise contains over 100 excellently reproduced illustrations of these maps to heaven on earth along with Scafi's interesting, detailed commentary on the evolution of this divine mapmaking and the state of the (physical and theological) world at the time. This is a beautifully presented and informative book; I could spend many enjoyable hours looking through all of the maps.
