Description

This completely revised and updated digital edition presents texts written by medieval Christian, Muslim and Jewish travelers to the Holy Land, including: St. Jerome, “The Pilgrimage of Holy Paula,” c.382 CE; Paula & Eustochium, “Letter to Marcella on the Holy Places,” 386; Mukaddasi of Jerusalem, “Description of Palestine,” 985; Nâsir-i-Khusrau, “Diary of a Journey through Syria and Palestine,” 1047; Theoderich of Würzburg, “Guide to the Holy Land,” c.1172; and Benjamin of Tudela, “Description of the Holy Land,” from his “Itinerary,” c.1173 “The Holy Land in the Middle Ages” also features: over 300 electronic pages; nearly 100 black & white and color photos, historical drawings, and prints; 7 building plans; interactive gazetteer of places, buildings, and holy sites; gallery of 9 city views of Jerusalem from the 6th to the 16th century; gallery of 8 maps of the Holy Land from c.1200 to 1630; interactive maps of the Holy Land and Jerusalem; and a bibliography. In a region often caricatured by the images and rhetoric of crusade and jihad, it’s important to realize that through most of its medieval history the Holy Land was host to countless curious and devout travelers of all three faiths. They sailed to the same ports, walked and rode the same roads, lodged in the same cities and towns and visited and revered the same secular and sacred sites. “The Holy Land in the Middle Ages” offers important texts documenting these centuries of peaceful co-existence. “The Holy Land in the Middle Ages” is fully searchable and can be navigated page-by-page like a traditional print book, accessed via the interactive table of contents of texts or images, or through the page-search feature. Hyperlinked references access the appropriate notes to the text and introductions, and a Bibliographical Guide completes the edition. Loaded onto a laptop computer, tablet or smart phone, this e-book provides the perfect companion to the student, the jet-seat or arm-chair traveler.
