Chap. II.
The description of the City of Jerusalem, and the territory thereof.

Am unskilfull in Geography, and much more in the making of Mappes: but according to the faithfull view of my eyes, I will first draw the situation of Jerusalem, and after explaine it, aswell as I can. And first I thinke good to professe that by my journy to this City, I had no thought to expiate any least sinne of mine; much lesse did I hope to merit any grace from God; but when I had once begun to visite forraigne parts, I was so stirred up by emulation and curiosity, as I did never behold any without a kind of sweete envy, who in this kind had dared more then my selfe. Thus affected, I thought no place more worthy to be viewed in the whole world, then this City, where howsoever I gave all divine worship to God, and thought none to be given to the places, yet I confesse that (through the grace of God) the very places strucke me with a religious horrour, and filled my mind prepared to devotion, with holy motions. In like sort I professe, that I will faithfully relate the situation of the City, and the description of the monuments made to me by the Friars, making conscience not to adde or detract, but as neere as I can to use their owne words. Yet doe I not my selfe beleeve all the particulars I write upon their report, neither doe I perswade any man to beleeve them. But for many monuments, the scripture

Jerusalem.
