Wonders of the East: view of the medieval European travelers

Abstract. In the IV-XII centuries travels to the East were particularly important for the medieval Europeans because the events described in the Old Testament and the New Testament took place in Egypt, in the Sinai, in Asia Minor, in Palestine. Itineraries, the medieval travel guides, kept descriptions of travel routes, lists of places that were supposed to be attended by the pilgrims. They saved folk customs of the Christian East, its legends and everyday observations, noted all the rare and unusual that attracted the attention of their authors.

Key words: travel literature, itinerary, pilgrimage, Palestine, Jerusalem, the Middle Ages.
