"De edificatione templi"

On either side of woodcut fictional plans of Solomon's Temple in Jerusalem. Following the „Tent of Meeting (Tabernacle) this was the first Jewish temple built of stone. Nebukadnezar II. destroyed it. After the Babylonian captivity a second temple was built, which was lacking the most sacred part: The Ark of the Covenant, missing since the destruction of the first temple. The second temple was destroyed by the Romas. Left nowadays is only part of the temple's wall: The Wailing Wall.

Salomon's Temple is also an important constituent of Freemasonry and Rosicrucians. There is a clearcut relatedness to Salomon's Temple, based on the ideas of early habitual evidence during the Middle Ages.

Woodcut from the Nuremberg Cronicle by Hartmann Schedel (1440-1515).

Schedel, medical doctor, humanist and historian ist the author of the Cronicle. It was published by Anto Koberger (14440 / 45 - 1513), in Nuremberg in the year 1493 (Latin edition in the month of May, the very small and therefore rare German edition in December 1493).

Upper margin corner shows traces of age: it is frayed, tatered and brittle with repair. Otherwise in very good condition, especially when considering, that this woodcut is over 500 years old. Latin (first) edition

The entire page: 45,5 x 32 cm (17.9 x 12.6")

"De edificatione templi"

Auf beiden Seiten des Holzschnitts mehr oder weniger fiktive Darstellungen des Salomonischen Tempels. In der Nachfolge der Stiftshütte, die ein mobiles Zelt war, war der Jerusalemer Tempel der erste steinerne Tempel der Juden. Nebukadnezar II hat ihn zerstört, als er die Juden in die „Babylonische Gefangenschaft" nahm.

Der an gleicher Stelle errichtete zweite Tempel auf dem Tempelberg in Jerusalem erreichte nicht die Pracht. des ersten. Ihm fehlte vor allem das Allerheiligste der Juden : die Bundeslade, die seit der Zerstörung des ersten Tempels vermisst wird. Nach der Zerstörung des zweiten Tempels durch die Römer bestehen heute nur noch Reste der Tempelmauer: Die Klagemauer.

Der Jerusalemer Tempel ist auch Bestandteil der Tradition der Freimaurer und Rosenkreuzer.Es gibt einen deutlichen Bezug zum Salomonischen Tempel, der sich in den Gebräuchen der Steinmetzbauhütten des Mittelalters manifestiert.

Holzschnitt aus der Weltchronik von Hartmann Schedel (1440-1515). Schedel war Arzt, umfangreich gebildeter Humanist und Historiker. Die Nürnberger Chronik, auch Schedelsche Weltchronik genannt, ist sein wichtigstes Werk. Das umfangreiche, grossformatige Werk entstand 1493 in Nürnberg. Anton Koberger (1440 bis 1445 - Geburtsjahr nicht genau bekannt - 1513) verlegte dieses extrem bedeutende Inkunabelwerk, zunächst in Latein (Mai 149, dann in deutscher Sprache (Dezember 1493).

Obere Marge hat in einer Ecke Altersschäden (ausgefranst, brüchig). Etwas repariert.Ansonsten ist der Holzschnitt in sehr gutem Zustand, zumal er über 500 Jahre alt ist. Lateinische (erste) Ausgabe.
