H-EarlySlavic is a forum for the discussion of Slavic history, literature, and culture before 1725. It is focused primarily on East Slavic (Russian, Ukrainian, Belorussian) regions, though West and South Slavic areas will also be considered.

Re: Russian and East European Travel Literature by Pilgrims to the Holy Land, Arabic-speaking Regions and Constantinople

Indeed, Weisensel and Stavrou is the first place to turn, remembering though that there is a lot which has been published since their impressive bibliography. In recent years there have been various good editions (granted, in many cases of texts which had earlier been published, but not necessarily as well) of many of the important early modern travel accounts. One can get to a lot of this from the substantial monograph by S. A. Kirillina, Ocharovannye stranniki: Arabo-Osmanskii mir glazami rossiiskikh palomnikov XVI-XVIII stoletii (M.: Kluch-S, 2010).

This is perhaps obvious, but I thought I would send it to you nonetheless.
