Reise Ins Heilige Land (Hardcover)
about this item
In late classical antiquity, a woman from the western part of the Roman Empire undertook a journey to the Holy Land. Her book may well be the oldest extant travelogue written by a woman. For the first time, this edition presents the work in a bilingual edition that includes the portion first discovered in 2005, providing access to a fascinating document of the travel culture of late antiquity, particularly in relation to women.
