Maps of the Amazon region stemmed for a long time principally from the Jesuit missionaries who explored and described it. But just how great was their influence on this drawn knowledge? Irina Saladin seeks answers and shows that early modern maps of the area were in very many respects influenced by the missionary, trans-cultural and political practices of their producers.
