Abstract

The journey to the Holy Land is a theme that has been addressed in a variety of forms – from journals to travel guides, from literary texts to archeological, scientific, and ethnographic studies, to masterpieces like the 14th century Libro d’Oltramare by the Franciscan friar Niccolò da Poggibonsi. The ten works published here approach this complex but fascinating topic, made more relevant today by concerns like knowing the other, mutual respect, and coexistence in diversity.
