Fabrizio Ficco, Germano Lori, Giacomo Perego, Francesco Voltaggio, and Marco Zappella: from the editor of Rivista Biblica Italiana to the most authoritative biblical scholars of the Neocatechumenal Way; from the international coordinator of the Centro Biblico San Paolo to professors of Sacred Scripture at the Pontifical Gregorian University. These are the signatures behind the very recent Atlante Biblico published by St.Pauls. The work aims to offer the reader the possibility of better penetrating the understanding of Scripture through an in-depth knowledge of the spatio-temporal coordinates of Revelation. Salvation history is set within the larger framework of universal history and is based on events that occurred in a specific time. In addition to a historical dimension, it also had a geographical one that took place in a specific space. This is because God revealed Himself in concrete places. Besides physical geography, therefore, there is also a “geography of salvation” that cannot be overlooked. The new Atlas, therefore, is developed according to the categories of space (physical geography and geography of salvation) and time (universal history and salvation history), through a model of alternating text and geographic maps, with new and detailed cartography, updated images of holy places and the most significant archaeological finds. All this is accompanied by new archaeological discoveries, ancient sources, biblical quotations, recent bibliographies, appendices, etc. The work is intended not only for experts in the field, but also for students of theology and ordinary believers. It, in fact, while presenting a good scientific level, is usable by all. To learn more visit site.
