Pilgrims who visited the Holy Land between the IV and VII century

The Bible of Sophronius' Anacreontica

Near all texts related to Christian santuaries in Jerusalem and surrounding are taken from the New Testament or Apocryphal books. The book of Psalms, from the Old Testament, is quoted in the opening two verses of Sophronius' poem in reference to the gates of Jerusalem [20:1-4]. An interesting aspect is the presence of memoirs taken from the apocryphal text in addition to the the canonical ones. We shall refer to them at their own place and give the text in separate files.

A book icon () is employed in the Index below as a link to the actual texts. If a passage is present in more than one of the synoptical Gospels we will give preference to Matthew's because it was the most popular of the gospels in ancient times.
