Christophorous Cellarius (1638-1707) A professor of Geography who held postions in Weimar and Halle Germany. Although the Ancient-Medieval-Modern division of history was used earlier by Italian Renaissance scholars Leonardo Bruni and Flavio Biondo, Cellarius' ''Universal History Divided into an Ancient, Medieval, and New Period'' helped popularize it. After him, this tripartite division became standard. He is perhaps best known for the “Geographia Antiqua”, which was first published in 1686 with editions being re-printed to 1812.The Harmonia Macrocosmica, was published in 1660 (a reprint was issued in 1661) by the Amsterdam publisher Johannes Janssonius as a cosmographical supplement to his Atlas Novus. Andreas Cellarius had already started working on this atlas before 1647 and intended it to be a historical introduction for a two-volume treatise on cosmography but the second part was never published.
