Palestine Pilgrim Text Society (333 AD-c. 1400s)

The Palestine Pilgrim Text Society specialised in publishing editions and translations of medieval texts relevant to the history and pilgrimage to the Holy Land. The society was established in London to provide translations of accounts by pilgrims and other travelers between the 4th and 15th centuries. Particular attention was given to accounts containing geographical or topographical information, as well as those which discussed the manners and customs of the Holy Land. The original narratives were written in a variety of languages, including Greek, Latin, Arabic, Hebrew, Old French, Russian, and German.
