In the book of Ezekiel, God declares: " This is Jerusalem, which I have set in the center of the nations, with countries all around her". Besides the religious center of the world, Jerusalem became also the center of the world of maps. The Greek city was called ompalos, the Greek word for navel. A typical example where you see that Jerusalem was put in the center of the world is the T-and-O maps.
