About this title


Excerpt from The Pilgrimage of Arculfus in the Holy Land: About the Year A. D. 670

Nothing appears to be known of Arculfus, the pilgrim of whose travels this work is a narrative, beyond the very slight notices of him contained in the work itself and in a reference to it by the Venerable Bede in his 'ecclesiastical History.' From these we learn that he was a native Of France (gaul), and that at the time when he undertook the journey referred to he had attained the rank of Bishop; bur we have no information at all as to the see over which he presided. It is stated by Bede that his bishopric was in France, and, although this might be a mere supposition grounded on the references in the record itself, we need not hesitate to accept it as being correct. His pilgrimage to the East was undertaken about the year ad. 670, accord ing to the calculation of Dr. Tobler (société de l'orient Latin), and it must have occupied some time. He spent nine months in the City Of Jerusalem (possibly during that period he may have made shorter visits to the south or the north Of Palestine), and he gives us an account of the chief places of interest to the west of the Jordan, including in the south, Bethlehem, Hebron, Jericho, Galgal, and the Dead Sea, - and in the north, _sichem, Mount Tabor, Nazareth, the Sea Of Galilee, and the sources of the Jordan. After'extending his travels as far as Tyre and Damascus.
