Event description

Description

In 1394 a little, short-sighted middle aged provincial lawyer from Southern Italy made a dangerous pilgrimage to Jerusalem across the Mediterranean to Alexandria, up the Nile to Cairo and across the Sinai to the Holy Land. He came home via Jaffa, Beirut, Cyprus, Rhodes, Athens and Corinth. He kept a diary that John Mole has translated from Latin. It is fascinating first hand account of peoples and lands in the turmoil of the Eastern Mediterranean as the Ottoman, Byzantine, Venetian and Latin empires struggle for supremacy. Join him on his journey!
