Paradise Situated Edition

Today was delightful. Sunny, clear, 70s. I went to Eastern Market, where, amongst the locally-grown micro greens, apples!, and lamb sausage, I found an 1889 Map of Countries Mentioned in the Bible.

It's too big to fit on my scanner, so I scanned what I consider to be the good parts -- some of the insets, including the "Supposed Situation of Paradise." Click on it to see it bigger, because it is fabulous and you must. To read about the beginnings of my new obsession with maps regarding religion, click here.

What a find! Having just finished reading Bruce Feiler's "Where God Was Born" last Friday- and Happy New Year! - I looked at this map with renewed interest! Love. Ann
