Symon Semeonis

I read an interesting article about this little known Irish pilgrim, Symon Semeonis some years ago and it was great to hear this radio documentary over the Christmas. The Friars Walk. This is the only surviving narrative of an irish pilgrim in the period.

I never understood the circuitous route he took to get to Jerusalem but the documentary explains it very well.

Have a listen.
