    The Matteo Ricci College will soon hang a copy of a famous map on its office walls created by its namesake, Matteo Ricci S.J. It will be prominently featured in the office.

    Commissioned by Emperor Wanli of China in 1602, the original map put China at the center of the world, and was the first Chinese map to identify the Americas. It is currently valued around $1 million.

    The map was on display for four months in 2010 at the Library of Congress before it was returned to the James Ford Bell Library at the University of Minnesota. You can read more about the map here and here
