Maps

In this section of the site, we provide images of maps that are useful for placing the documents, churches and archives that come together in this project within a historical context. These maps give perspective into how the mapmakers conceived of their world, as well as how borders and regions have changed over time. 

Not all of the maps included here are from archives that participate in the ESSSS project. For maps included in other digital archives, click on the map to access the database from which you can download a high quality copy. Reference information is included beneath each map.
