Egeria who was probably a Spanish nun visited the Holy Land only some fifty years after the reign of Constantine. Her's is thus the earliest surviving account of the Holy Land. Her description with a loving attention to detail of the Holy Places and particularly of Jerusalem make her the prime source for early Christian pilgrimage and worship. John Wilkinson's well-known book has been completely updated and revised to take account of recent archaeology and scholarship. A wealth of information is included about Egeria, her journey and early liturgy.
Table of Contents
Egeria, the traveller; Early references to Egeria; Early Christian pilgrimage; Aelia Capitolina; The Bordeaux Pilgrim; Egeria's route; Table of Dates; Clergy and people; Liturgy.
