Title : Carte emblématique, philosophique et morale ou Théatre de la vie humaine..
Map maker : P. F… (Tiré du Manuscrit de Mr.)..
Date : Lyon, ca. 1860.
Size : 22.2 x 33.2 inches. / 56.5 x 84.3 cm.

Description :Rare and curious allegorical map, lithographed by G. Lyon Marmorat. The map is surrounded by an explanatory text defining the various terms such as "Empire of Satan", "Ocean of divine love," Sea of self-contempt", " Empire of Jesus Christ ", etc.

This didactic text is a plea for the Catholic Church as can be seen through these definitions:
D. "Qu'est-ce que la Carte Emblématique… ? R. C'est une esquisse des merveilles et bienfaits de Dieu à l'égard des hommes et un tableau descriptif des combats et des grands voyages de ces derniers à travers le monde. - Empire de Jésus-Christ.
D. Qu'est-ce que l'empire de J-C. ? - R. L'empire de Jésus-Christ est le pays le plus délicieux qui existe…
D. Qui sont ceux qui appartiennent au royaume du Monde ? R. Ce sont les chrétiens qui n'observent pas la loi de Jésus-Christ, et qui donnent la préférence à Satan, à ses œuvres et à ses pompes, après y avoir renoncé au palais de l'Innocence.
D. Qui sont ceux qui habitent le royaume de l'Erreur ? - R. Ce sont les Juifs, les Infidèles, les Mahométants, les Hérétiques, les Schismatiques, les Apostats et les Excommuniés."
