Eusebius of Caesarea’s gazetteer of biblical place-names is the basic handbook for the historical geography of the Holy Land on both banks of the Jordan. In its Latin version, it had a strong influence on the Occidental world. The Syriac version had a similar influence on the Orient and is presented here for the first time in an interlinear form: Greek and Syriac, together with a German and an English translation. It does not include the extensions of the Latin version, and is thus of considerable significance for the textual history of the Greek version.
