Egeria, Etheroiua or Aetheria Egeria, one of the earliest documented Christian pilgrims, visited the most important destinations of pilgrimage in the eastern Mediterranean between 381 and 384 AD. She wrote an account of her travels, which is among the earliest descriptions of pilgrimage travel to the Holy Land and beyond. Little is known about the identity of Egeria. She most probably lived in the western part of the Roman Empire, perhaps in the region of Galicia, in modern Spain. Some scholars, however, prefer the southern region of modern France as her place of origin.
