A New Look at the Itinerarium Burdigalense 1 Laurie Douglass bio The anonymous Itinerarium Burdigalensethe Bordeaux itinerary, 2 dated of the common era, is the earliest surviving Christian account of travel to what came to be known as the Holy Land.
What is This Document?
The itinerary includes no details that suggest that this trip was extraordinary, or even dangerous. Yet because the itinerary depends in part upon the burdigalwnse of measurable source material—in this case, Holy Scripture and the lands traversed between western France and the eastern shores of the Mediterranean—it says quite a bit to readers who gauge what has been mentioned in this document against what could have been mentioned, but was not.
As the earliest extant account of European Christian pilgrimage in Palestine, this document has generally been studied either as a sort of ground zero for analysis of the development of Christian pilgrimage to places mentioned in the Bible, 7 or as a source for data about overland [End Page ] travel in the Mediterranean world in late antiquity. Was there nothing to see in Milan, in Constantinople, in Antioch, in Rome, or in the other cities through which the pilgrim passed? Although silence is a dangerously elusive textual element, what is recorded in this document suggests the eloquence of what is not.
These silences make what is reported appear in higher relief. Certain categories emerge which seem to indicate characteristic ways in which the Bordeaux traveller particularizes place; some may even itineraarium that this anonymous traveller was a woman.
Overall, my intention is to illumine some unnoticed aspects of this document. Other elements Tiinerarium have noticed in the itinerary may also be significant, even if no definitive conclusions can be drawn from them.

Thus, to [End Page ] suggest that the Bordeaux itinerary was not written as a guidebook for other travellers to the Holy Land may not add anything to our understanding of the text itself. Yet the same suggestion encourages a shift of attention to the writer that can engender further reflection on the phenomenon and experience of travel and Christian pilgrimage in late antiquity.
Although the Bordeaux itinerary was circulated, copied, and bound with both geographic and monastic texts, 12 it is not a treatise on geography or eremitic life.
