Bunting Map
The Cloverleaf Map and Jerusalem in its center
Heinrich Bünting (1545-1606) was a Protestant priest, theologian and cartographer (creator of maps) known for the maps he drew, as well as his book: Travel Book through Holy Scripture (Itinerarium Sacrae Scripturae), a book of woodcut maps published in 1581.
Bünting was born in Hanover, Germany in 1545, and studied theology at the University of Wittenberg. He completed his studies in 1569, and began working as a priest. In 1600 he was fired from his position due to theological disputes, and went back to live in Hanover.
In his book, published in Magdeburg in 1581, are maps of the Holy Land including the famous clover shaped map of Jerusalem, a map of Europe in the form of a woman wearing a cape and a crown, and a map of Asia in the image of Pegasus the winged horse.
