Caption: Christianized constellations. This is plate 22 from the 1708 edition of the star atlas 'Harmonica Macrocosmica' by the Dutch-German mathematician and cosmographer Andreas Cellarius (1596-1665). The Latin title describes the diagram as showing the first of two celestial hemispheres with Christianized constellations, proposed by Julius Schiller in 1627. The twelve apostles were used for the zodiacal constellations, with northern and southern constellations from the New and Old Testament respectively. First published in 1660, this edition was published in Amsterdam by Petrus Schenk and Gerard Valk.
