Abstract

The first subtitle of Henry Timberlake’s travel account continues with: ‘and what admirable Accidents befel them in their journey to Jerusalem, Grand Cairo, Alexandria, etc.’ Sabbatai Zevi (1626–1676) was an Ottoman Jew who claimed to be the Messiah, but then later converted to Islam. Perhaps Timberlake had heard of this false or counterfeit messiah, and had him immortalised in his book.
