By Nicholas M. Vester on April 25, 2005
Format: Hardcover
A wonderful pilgrimage to Orthodox Christian Jerusalem in the late 5th century. Very moving to see how little has changed in our Church since then! Sister Egeria stays in your heart after this wonderful read

Format: Hardcover
Egeria, a nun on pilgrimage to the holy land in the late fourth or early fifth century, gives great first-hand descriptions of the liturgical life of the Jerusalem Church, other famous sites of devotion, and her return trip to Constantinople.
This book is of interest to archeologists, geographers, church historians, and liturgists. Another related book that I recently skimmed is "The Land Called Holy: Palestine in Christian History and Thought" by Robert Wilken. It is a readable account fo how Christians have engaged the land of Jesus and made it their own in every political, social, and religious sense. Enjoy!

This is absolutely fascinating. I highly recommend this book which is really quite obscure in theological and Biblical circles. This is an important historical document as well.
