Comments to eBook The Itinerary of Benjamin of Tudela
Peles
This book was required reading for a history course I took about Jewish life during the Diaspora's Medieval Period. It is a travel diary, and is considered the best source for information about the locations of Jewish populations and the conditions of life in their communities from the Mediterranean basin and all of Europe at that time. At times it is a tedious read but nevertheless a unique remarkable document.
Gelgen
Excellent historical revelations showing the Jewish population and places in the 1200s in Middle East, Europe and Asia highly recommended.

This is a supplementary book review to my review of "Early Travels in Palestine" in which I commented upon "The Itinerary of Rabbi Benjamin of Tudela." This volume, originally published in 1841, contains five scholarly studies about the unusual twelfth century trip by Benjamin during which he visited some 300 cities, including those in China and Africa, and recorded his account of what he saw and was told. His book is important because it reveals information about the Middle Ages that is otherwise unknown. This book contains an introduction, extensive notes by about a half dozen scholars commenting on Benjamin's book, an essay by the famed scholar Leopold Zunz on the geological literature of the Jews, a second essay by Dr. Zunz on the geography of Palestine, and an essay on the Caliphs of Bagdad during the second half of the twelfth century by F. Lebrecht.

Some of the host of information in this volume are: The preface to Benjamin's book was most likely added by another person and it is likely that a lot of the material Benjamin included in his book is lost. Benjamin met important historical Jewish men, such as Ravad, he unfortunately gives us too little information about them, but this information is supplied in this book's notes. The notes also tell about other Jewish historical matters, such as the legends associated with the second century Ten Martyrs, the origin of the practice of bringing the bones of deceased parents and friends to Israel for burial, the black Jews living in Africa and when they came to Africa, and the history of the pseudo-messiah David Alroy.
