Imperium Orthodoxiae Evangelicum : J. Lange

click here to view a large version in a separate window

A most unusual and rare allegorical cartographic curiosity produced as the frontispiece to Joachim Lange's "Antibarbarus Orthodoxiae ...." a theological work printed in Berlin. Lange was a noted German Lutheran theologian, one of the heads of the so-called Pietistic school, and a seemingly rather controversial and argumentative figure. The map which was created to face the titlepage, here present as issued, shows the course of the River of Orthodoxy "Flavius Orthodoxiae" through the kingdoms of Renovations, Justifications and Illuminations, bordered on one side by the countries of Pseudorthodoxy and at the other Fanaticism. Trimmed close and minor marginal staining but all detail clear and intriguing.
