Abraham Ortelius compiled, wrote, and published in 1570 a world atlas and summary of 16th-century cartography in “Theatrum Orbis Terrarum” (Theatre of the World) which remained in demand until the early 17th-century. The excerpt shown is from the 1584 printing of Ortelius’ work; the book is stored in Marienbibliothek (St. Mary’s Library) in the German city of Halle. The map shows what was understood of North America at the time; the east coast of Canada and U.S., the northern Gulf of Mexico, and the northern Caribbean are “taking shape.” In 1535 on his second voyage into what are now the Gulf of Saint Lawrence and the Saint Lawrence River, French navigator Jacques Cartier journeyed up the river to Stadacona (Québec City) and Hochelaga (Montréal). It’s interesting how details from Cartier’s voyages were noticed by Ortelius some three decades later. However, as Europe knew North America in the late 16th-century, there’s incompleteness for Newfoundland and the Labrador coast, incomplete mapping of Atlantic Canada, and the absence of the Great Lakes and the Mississippi River.

Believed to be the oldest publicly accessible Protestant library in Germany, the Marienbibliothek contains over 30-thousand books mostly between the 15th- and 18th-centuries, including some of Martin Luther’s works. The library was established in 1552 by Sebastian Boetius (1515-1573) when he became the superintendent at St. Mary’s Church.

In the renovated building where composer Georg Friedrich Händel was born in 1685, the Händel-Haus now houses a museum dedicated to Händel’s early life, before he departed for Hamburg, Italy, and London. The museum also includes a significant collection of antique musical instruments. Shown here is a “cembalo” (Italian for harpsichord) built in 1599 by the renowned Rucker family in Antwerp. Not seen in this view is the inscription on the top panel of the instrument: “Hans Ruckers - me fecit - Antverpiae - Anno 1599”. This is the oldest surviving two-keyboard harpsichord built by the Ruckers, whose reputation was to harpischords as Stradivarius was to violins. When he lived in London, Händel owned a Ruckers harpischord. Thanks to Stadtmarketing Halle and Stiftung Händel-Haus, and to Karl Altenburg for an abbreviated guided tour of the museum.

In 1695, August Hermann Francke founded what would become the Francke Foundations as a means to begin in Halle and continue the tradition of social- and education-work with the Reformation/Protestant ethic in mind. “Cabinets of curiosities” was a common European hobby in the 17th- and 18th-century as a means of encapsulating the entirety of the world. With his Cabinet of Artifacts and Natural Curiosities, Francke assembled a collection of cultural and natural items gathered from around the world as an instructional tool for students. Growing in size, this collection was further organized and catalogued, and eventually opened to the public as a museum from about 1734. As part of the collection of “Artefacts” (things made by hand), this cabinet shows items from Asia pertaining to the art of writing.

A. Stollberg applies a delicate dark-chocolate drizzle as a final touch on these Halloren Schokoladenkugeln (chocolate balls): they were delicious. If we could, we would’ve stayed here at the counter gleefully sampling chocolate! Since the early 19th-century, the Halloren Schokoladenfabrik AG company has been making chocolate: they now have non-alcoholic and alcoholic varieties; white, milk, and dark varieties, and additional flavours too numerous to describe. Thanks to C. Bock and Halloren for the guided tour and the chocolate gift pack, and to I. Hermann and J. Oppat from Stadtmarketing Halle.
