Online: Fratris Felicis Fabri Evagatorium (Vol. 1)

Salvete!

My latest transcription project has been uploaded to Project Gutenberg: Volume 1 of Fratris Felicis Fabri Evagatorium in Terrae Sanctae, Arabiae et Egypti Peregrinationem, a German monk's pilgrimage to the Holy Land etc. This volume covers his first journey to the Holy Land (a brief account) and the beginning of the second one, including a very interesting account of the journey itself (very detailled account). You can download it from its Project Gutenberg-page.

The second pilgrimage took place in 1483/1484, so do not expect classical Latin. I can recommend this text to anyone who is interested in a lively account of travelling and pilgrimage in the late 15th century. It is fairly easy to read, so give it a try. There are two more parts (not yet transcribed) which cover the rest of his pilgrimage including the journey back.

I hope people will enjoy it. Please share its being available for free at Gutenberg.org.

Valete,

Carolus Raeticus
Sperate miseri, cavete felices.
