Georges Darboy, French churchman, was bishop of Nancy (1859-63) and archbishop of Paris (1863-71). In the Franco-Prussian War he behaved heroically, notably in the siege of Paris when he remained in the city to aid the wounded. When the Commune of Paris was set up, he was imprisoned as a hostage and subsequently shot. This is his account of the journey he conducted to Jaffa, Jerusalem, Bethlehem, Hebron, Nazareth, Akka, Damascus & the Lebanon.
