The Gaelic Maundeville (Author: John Maundeville)

paragraph 43

I do not say that one cannot go in one day from Tyre or Jerusalem to Acon (Acre), a city which sometime belonged to the Christians; and from it to Lombardy by sea is two thousand and three hundred Lombard miles. And beside that city is the hill of Carmel, where the prophet Elijah used to dwell, and there first was founded the Order of the Carmelite Friars. At the foot of that hill is a city which was named Caiphas (Haifa) because Caiphas founded it. It is now destroyed; and on the side of it nearest to the other hill Saint James and Saint John, son of Zebedee were born; and there is a noble church built in that place for them together.
