Allow me a moment to nerd out about geography a bit.
Guys, I love maps. I really like this cartography class I'm taking because it's showing me just how much of an art map-making is. There's so much interpretation and creative license involved. It is absolutely fascinating how the same data can be represented in so many different ways based on one's worldview and how many purposes a map can have aside from serving as a reference.
This is a map of the world made by Gervase of Ebstorf in the 13th century, during the Dark Ages. It did apparently have some practical use, but it was made with the central intention of illustrating important Biblical stories and showing the dominion of Christ over the face of the earth. Notably, Jerusalem is at the center, and Jesus's head, hands, and feet are located at the map's extents. Not only is it beautiful, it's a great example of how the cartography of the time period was influenced by a largely Christian worldview (in the West, at least).
Maps are just so freaking cool.
