The largest known late medieval world map was the "Ebstorf Mappa Mundi". This map named for the Benedictine monastery in Ebstorf Germany where it was found in 1830. The map was most likely produced in the middle of the thirteenth century. Unfortunately the map was completely destroyed during the Second World War.
