This book is not yet featured on Listopia. Mar 13, Micki James rated it really liked it. This is primary literature of extreme importance in the study of the development of the Catholic liturgy, since pilgrim Egeria a wealthy lady making the grand tour writes in detail all of the celebrations carried out in the Holy Land. The book has lengthy apparati pklgrimage I didn’t read, a page introduction and pages of endnotes, not to mention Bibliography and Index.
But it’s always interesting to read these books in the original. This gets a little repetitious — at every place pilgrimafe visit This is primary literature of extreme importance in the study of the development of the Catholic liturgy, since pilgrim Egeria a wealthy lady making the grand tour writes in detail all of the celebrations carried out in the Holy Land. This gets a little repetitious — at every place she visits the proper passage from the Scripture is read, and a Psalm fitting to the place, and she never fails to note this.
It was interesting that when she arrived in Haran, the place where Abraham lived, apart from a few clergy she found no Christians living there, for they were all pagans. She sees all the sites, always convincing the local clergy to take her to the out-of-the-way places “he graciously agreed to guide us to the well from which the holy woman Rebecca had drawn water”. When she gets to Jerusalem she starts describing liturgies.
Apparently everyone in those days got up before cockcrow and worshipped all day long. Every once in a while comes in a fascinating detail which you don’t read in the secondary literature, such as that in Lent they eat “no olive oil, nothing which comes from trees, but only water and a little flour soup.
The translation is good, sometimes sounding amazingly contemporary and sometimes revealing thought patterns so far away from the way we organize knowledge today arriving at the gate at the “hour when men begin to recognize each other” that the distance between then and now is keenly felt.
I’m glad I read it. A medida que transcurre el viaje va enviando una serie de cartas describiendo lo que ve y lo que va haciendo.
La pellegrina si ferma nei luoghi sacri rileggendo insieme al suo seguito i passi della Bibbia a loro dedicati Itinerarium, I, Quelle Parole diventano la lente di lettura del palinsesto paesaggistico: I luoghi sono vividi nelle parole della pellegrina ma non possiedono consistenza reale senza questo sostrato.
May 06, Christiane rated it it was amazing. The oldest surviving text recounting a woman’s pilgrimage to the Holy Land.
Half of the surviving text deals with her travels in search of the holy places mentioned in the accounts of the wanderings of the Israelites, and half details the liturgy observed in the churches pilgrimwge Jerusalem. Fascinating for anyone studying pilgrimage. The notes on the text are especially good, also.
Dec 02, Jane Pligrimage Meyer added it Shelves: Again, this is not the edition I have. I do have this translation by Egefia, but mine is hardcover and published by Paulist Press. This is a fascinating read–of a diary of a women, Egeria, probably written in the fifth century. Her words recount her travels to the Holy Land. Jan 29, Debbi rated it liked it Shelves: At times it was a bit tedious – just like reading someone else’s diary.
But at other times it was a fascinating look at a first person account of the practices and worship of the early church. Aug 18, Shawneci rated it it was amazing.
