Dietrich, Booklet on Holy Places 1538-1541

Context

Dietrich (Theodericus) was a German priest of the 12th century who travelled to the Holy Land under the Kingdom of Jerusalem. His account survives in only two manuscripts of the 15th century that derive from a common ancestor: Österreichische Staatsbibliothek, Vienna 3529 and Bell Library, University of Minnesota 1424/Co. In this passage Dietrich describes major roads in his itinerary.

Text

Hec ergo via, que ab Achon per Nazareth et Samariam atque Neapolim Ierosolimam ducit, ‘superior’ vocatur, et illa que perCesareamet Liddam ab Achon Ierosolimam tendit ‘Maritima’ appellatur.

Textual Note

Translation

Now this road which leads from Accon through Nazareth, Samaria, and Neapolis to Jerusalem is called the High Road; and that which leads from Achon throughCaesareaand Lidda to Jerusalem is called the Coastal Road.
