Ecclesiastical Maps

Ecclesiastical Map URL
Ecclesiastical maps are those made in Europe during the Middle Ages that showed location based on churches and religion and not science.  This map is inside Rome showing the churches in the Vatican.  Since this period in time was ruled by religion, these maps were very common to find.  Maps were also made of Heaven to show the myths and use propaganda to make people go to the churches.  These maps were ornamental and took a long time to create just one map.
