Subject: VMs: f68v3 ("Andromeda") and it's T-O map...?
Another quick thought: it's apparent (to my eyes, at least) that f68v3 has
something suspiciously like a T-O map right in the centre of it.
However, while I've seen numerous medieval T-O maps, I'm not aware of any
tradition of other maps or diagrams *containing T-O maps within them*. Are
I find it hard to look at that page and not think of the T-O map
representing the earth, and the Wolkenband representing the Milky Way, with
a linear sequence of stars strung out along the ecliptic - like 22 pearls
on a necklace.
