Felix Fabri

A page of Felix Fabri's ''Evagatorium'', from 1484 to 1488 Felix Fabri (also spelt Faber; 1441 – 1502) was a Swiss Dominican theologian. He left vivid and detailed descriptions of his pilgrimages to Palestine and also in 1489 authored a book on the history of Swabia, entitled ''Historia Suevorum''.

He made his early studies under the Dominicans at Basle and Ulm, where he spent most of his life.

"Faber" is the Latin nominative singular form of his surname. He is often referred to as "Fabri," the Latin genitive singular, i.e. the possessive form, because his name appears this way in the title of his book, "Fratris Felicis Fabri Evagatorium in Terræ Sanctæ, Arabiæ et Egypti peregrinationem."

One of Fabri's companions during his 1483–84 pilgrimage to the Holy Land was Hungarian poet and cleric János Lászai ().

In Jerusalem he met Bernhard von Breidenbach.

A fictional account of Fabri's journey to and time in the Holy Land is found in the book A Stolen Tongue, by Sheri Holman. Provided by Wikipedia
