Historical Context: One of the earliest Hebrew printed maps of the Holy Land published in the “Perush Rashi” in Venice in 1527. This book (and map) were created by Rabbi Mizrachi, but was not published until after his death in 1525-26. The map is based on places mentioned in the Hebrew Bible. It represents the Holy Land as an abstract, schematic image with east at the top and the land of Israel (Eretz Israel) in the center.
