Earliest Christian Travelers and Pilgrims Reference Books
Oded Irshai is Senior Lecturer in the Department of Jewish History at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem. He is an expert in the areas of Jewish and Christian history during Late Antiquity. During his time at the Katz Center, Irshai will examine the two earliest Christian travelers’ and pilgrims’ reference books, the Onomasticon and the Martyrs of Caesarea, both written by the Christian historian, commentator, and polemicist Eusebius of Caesarea (ca. 263–339 c.e.).
