The theater of the universe

Cultural, Exhibition in Montauban
  • The theater of the universe, offered by the Heritage Library for ages 14 and up. June 7 at 6 p.m. at Espace Perbosc.

  • Or rather the Theatrum orbis terrarum, the first modern atlas. Or how Abraham Ortellius represents the world at the end of the 16th century. An important atlas in the history of cartography, geographical knowledge... which happens to be a feat in terms of engraving and will be enriched until the beginning of the 17th century. Don't miss this opportunity to see this then innovative atlas, which dialogues with other atlases so important during the Ancien Régime.
