Egeria emprendió un viaje a Oriente, que discurrió entre Nitria, en Egipto, y Constantinopla. Duró aproximadamente tres años, del 381 al 384. La ilustre peregrina, perteneciente a la alta sociedad, culta y dotada de cualidades literarias, dejó constancia por escrito de su periplo, y ese relato se ha convertido en una obra de gran valor filológico, geográfico y litúrgico. Aunque el "Itinerarium Egeriae" ha sido publicado en varias ocasiones y traducido a diversas lenguas, esta edición, precedida por una documentada introducción de Agustín Arce, se caracteriza por el rigor crítico y por venir acompañada de algunos textos auxiliares que permiten conocer mejor una de las obras maestras, única en su género, de la antigüedad cristiana.

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0856687103, Paperback)

This eye-witness account of the Holy Places liturgy of the Holy Land describes the experience of a pilgrim who visited Jerusalem fifty years after the reign of Constantine, making hers the earliest surviving account. Her loving attention to detail makes Egeria's work an historical and liturgical source of prime importance today.

Written in the first part of the fifth century, this work is a charming record of the observations of a Christian woman on a lengthy pilgrimage to the Holy Lands. Her firsthand account is a work of major significance for the fields of archaeology, church history, philology, and comparative liturgy.… (more)
