Baron Ferdinand von Marie-Joseph De Geramb was a member of a monastery near Mulhausen in Alsace. He turned to religion after an adventurous youth as a soldier and had long dreamed of making pilgrimage to the Holy Land. After the revolution of July, 1830, when the monastery was closed and the monks were forced to give up their habit, he travelled to the Levant. His letters describe his journey through Egypt, Palestine, and Syria; he also touches briefly on the Greek revolution. This work is the translation of his French edition to Italian.
