Not everyone in Europe was comfortable with using constellations based on pagan mythology. Published in the early 1600s, the Augsburg lawyer Julius Schiller attempted to popularize the night sky by filling it with Christian images. He used the New Testament for the northern hemisphere, the Old Testament for the southern hemisphere, and the twelve apostles for the zodiac. Photo courtesy: Library of Congress
