Dublin c.1620

Braun and Hogenberg’s map of Dublin, taken from Civitates Orbis Terrarum, their much-celebrated multi-volume atlas.



A map of Dublin from around 1600, by Georg Braun and Frans Hogenberg

Taken from Civitates Orbis Terrarum, a multi-volume city atlas. Published between 1572 and 1617, this eventually contained almost 550 views and maps of cities all over the world. The 16th century was a time of great change in Ireland, with the English conquest completed by the Tudors, and subsequent Catholic unrest, particularly in Dublin. Trinity College opened in 1592 as a Protestant university for the Irish gentry, although most of the important Dublin families sent their sons to be educated at Catholic universities in Europe instead.
