Signum Ducis,

Itinera Hierosolymitana Crucesignatorum
The Crusaders' Journeys to Jerusalem
Sabino De Sandoli, OFM

Father Sabino De Sandoli's monumental opus (four volumes with over 2100 pages) presents excerpts from more than seventy codex-manuscripts written in the eleventh, twelfth and thirteenth centuries. It is the most complete collection of documentary evidence pertinent to the Oriental Crusades and the Latin Kingdom of Jerusalem (1100-1291).
"Itinera Hierosolymitana Crucesignatorum" was published between 1978 and 1985 by Studium Biblicum Franciscanum and the Franciscan Printing Press in Jerusalem.
We present the original pages in Latin or Medieval French side by side with an Italian translation performed by Father De Sandoli, OFM, who also wrote the presentation of each document.
The English translation was performed by Michael Olteanu.
