Anonymous X, Itinerary of the Holy Places 408

   https://caesarea-maritima.org/testimonia/284

Context

This brief guide for pilgrims to the Holy Land of unknown authorship is preserved in a manuscript in Milan that probably postdates composition by only a few decades. It displays the familiar features of the genre, though all geographic and biblical content is greatly condensed. This passage opens the itinerary, which advance south along the coast from Acco past Caesarea.

Text

Filippi et locus centurionis Corneli. Et deCesareausque Iopem sunt leugue XII, ubi est petronus sci. Iacobi Appli.

If anyone should want to go from Aco to Mount Carmel, it is 8 leagues to the place where blessed Elijah the Prophet was. From Carmel toCaesareais 8 leagues. There is said to be the Table of the Lord and the [tombs of the] four daughters of St. Philip and the site of the centurion Cornelius. And fromCaesareato Joppe is 12 leagues, and there is the stone of St. James the Apostle.
