A Pilgrim’s Guide to the Holy Land for Orthodox Christians

   
by Holy Nativity Convent

“This little book is not meant to include everything there is to see and do in the Holy Land. It is meant to lead an Orthodox Christian through the major Christian shrines that have been proven by tradition, time, and archaeology to be authentic. [...]In the Holy Land, in many instances, tradition was the source for both locating the holy sites and explaining their significance. Time and time again, the places and events the Orthodox always held as authentic according to tradition have been proven factual by archaeology or some other science.”
