Explorer[edit]

Is he really an "explorer"? With a very liberal definition of "explorer" I suppose he is, but all he did was go on a pilgrimage to places that were already very well known. (And he's certainly not a conquistador, nor a "Spanish explorer" in the sense that most people will think of...) Adam Bishop 21:38, 24 March 2006 (UTC)

explorers and travelers typically get lumped together. It was the same at Travel literature and I created a new Outdoor literature to handle the exploration/expedition stuff from the travel stuff, but there is no clear line between the genres they often mix. BoT is also sometimes called a "geographer". -- Stbalbach 23:21, 24 March 2006 (UTC)

Plagiarism[edit]

Half of this article is ripped off right from the Editorial Book Description of Dodo Press printing of "The Itinerary of Benjamin of Tudela" without sighting the source. See: [1]. - AJseagull1 00:38, 17 August 2007 (UTC)

Delisting[edit]

I'm delisting this as a good article becasue i believe it fails, on WP:WIAGA, parts 2b (lacks of inline cites) and 1a (prose), as I couldn't follow it all that well. Wizardman 04:36, 3 April 2008 (UTC)
