9780553816280: The Prester Quest

In 1177, Pope Alexander III wrote a letter to the elusive King of the Indies, otherwise known as Prester John. The person who was selected and set out to deliver this letter into the hand of Prester John was never heard of again. 824 years later, armed with a copy of Pope Alexander's letter, Nick Jubber set out from Venice with the intention of somewhat belatedly completing Master Philip's mission. Over the next four months he would travel by bus, train, tractor, and horse-drawn cart around the Eastern Mediterranean, through the Middle East and North Africa before homing in on Ethiopia and the closely-guarded tomb of a medieval king who legend links with the mythical, mystical figure of Prester John.

About the Author:

Nicholas Jubber was educated at Oxford. He has travelled extensively in South America, Europe, the Middle East, East Africa and Afghanistan and worked as a freelance journalist. He is also a playwright and has won an Oxford New Writing award. THE PRESTER QUEST is his first book.

Review:

“Nicholas Jubber’s search for the mythical monarch, Prester John, is quixotic to the point of madness. But his is an inspiring madness, bright with medieval fervor for the obscure, yet softened by skepticism and unflagging humor.”  —Independent

Descripción Transworld Publishers Ltd, United Kingdom, 2006. Paperback. Estado de conservación: New. New. Language: English . Brand New Book. In 1177, Pope Alexander III wrote a letter to the legendary Priest-King of the Indies, Prester John. As his emissary he chose his physician Master Philip. No one knew where the elusive monarch s kingdom lay (or whether he even existed), but Master Philip was undeterred and set out from Rome.and was never heard of again. Centuries later Nick Jubber found a copy of the Pope s letter and conceived a plan: to complete Master Philip s mission and deliver the letter, albeit eight hundred and twenty four years late. Crammed full of arcane history and learned trivia, both ancient and modern, The Prester Quest is the author s colourful account of a remarkable journey that began in Italy, encompassed the Middle East and ended in Ethiopia, at the subterranean tomb of a medieval king. Combining a young man s enthusiasm with an historian s understanding of time and place and a traveller s eye for the people and places he meets on the way, it s an ebullient, extremely readable (and somewhat eccentric) account of an extraordinary adventure.
