an unusual and thought-provoking story, that I really enjoyed reading.

Set in 16th century Venice, a monk without leaving his monastery, sets out to map the world. He is open to all info, impressions, and stories from visitors around the world.

What I really liked - and seemed of timeless value - was Fra Mauro's open-mindedness, love of learning, fascination with life, knowledge, and belief. As much as he wanted to produce an authentic map of the world, he was open to changing his views given new information and open to transforming himself. We could use more of this attitude today!
