‘The Itinerary of Jerónimo Lobo’
Original Language: Portuguese
The Itinerário is a composite text, belonging both to the genre of missionary literature and to that of adventurous travelogues. It contains an ample description of Lobo’s own experiences during his work as a missionary in Ethiopia, as well as recounting his travels around the Red Sea and the Swahili coast once the Ethiopian project had been completed.
