For archaeologists specializing in the Levant, the Onomasticon of Eusebius Pamphili, Bishop of Caesarea in Palestine (c. A.D. 260–339), has long been considered to be one of the most useful works extant from antiquity. Eusebius endeavored to list every place mentioned in the Bible and locate each one in the lands he knew. These sites have become the goal of Christian pilgrims ever since.
Carta has now made Eusebius’ valuable material available for the first time to laymen and students in English, presented in parallel with Jerome’s Latin rendering.
This important geographical witness will be available to more scholars and Bible students. The endeavor to “put the Bible on the map” will be advanced and made possible for a wider range of enthusiasts. Both the Greek and Latin texts will be at hand for the English reader and scholar in this new translation of the Onomasticon. "The maps are excellent."
"This publication is very good news for scholars and students of ancient Palestine, its history and geography."
