FEATURED OBJECT

Itinerary to Jerusalem

The Itinerary to Jerusalem was created by Matthew Paris in St Albans, England around 1250-1259. Section f.4v shows the cities of Damascus, Antioch and Acre, while section f.5r depicts Jerusalem and the Holy Land. The map is currently housed within the British Library, and has been made digitally available on Bloomsbury Medieval Studies to enable users to explore the object in exquisite detail. The new and exclusive Commentary Article by Judith Collard bridges the gap between primary and secondary content, and places the Itinerary to Jerusalem within its historical and cultural context.
