About the Book

We're sorry; this specific copy is no longer available. Here are our closest matches for Portraying the Land Hebrew Maps of the Land of Israel from Rashi to the Early 20th Century.

Description:

The earliest known Hebrew map of the Land of Israel is that drawn by Rashi (Rabbi Shlomo Yitzhaki, 11th century). In its wake, many maps were drawn and published by Jews. These maps depicted the Land of Israel and its borders, the route of the Israelites in the desert, the tribal allotments, and other biblical topics.This volume, which includes many reproductions â" mostly in color â" presents the Hebrew maps in two categories. The first, following in the footsteps of Rashi, were schematic maps, rectangular or square, without any artistic decoration. The second category includes maps influenced by or copied from Christian cartographers, though their Jewish artists attempted to bring them into line with Jewish tradition. A development of the 19th century was the appearance of cartographic tableaux that presented a traditional depiction of the Land of Israel together with drawings representing the holy places, and also modern maps, whose production continued into the 20th century.

Book Description Walter De Gmbh Gruyter Mai 2018, 2018. Buch. Condition: Neu. Neuware - The book presents and discusses a large corpus of Jewish maps of the Holy Land that were drawn by Jewish scholars from the 11th to the 20th century, and thus fills a significant lacuna both in the history of cartography and in Jewish studies. The maps depict the biblical borders of the Holy Land, the allotments of the tribes, and the forty years of wanderings in the desert. Most of these maps are in Hebrew although there are several in Yiddish, Ladino and in European languages. The book focuses on four aspects: it presents an up-to-date corpus of known maps of various types and genres; it suggests a classification of these maps according to their source, shape and content; it presents and analyses the main topics that were depicted in the maps; and it puts the maps in their historical and cultural contexts, both within the Jewish world and the sphere of European cartography of their time. The book is an innovative contribution to the fields of history of cartography and Jewish studies. It is written for both professional readers and the general public. The Hebrew edition (2014), won the Izhak Ben-Zvi Prize. 326 pp. Englisch. Seller Inventory # 9783110564532
