The details (from wikipedia)


Felix Fabri – sometimes referred to as Faber – was a Dominican theologian who was born about 1441 in Zurich, Switzerland and died in 1502 in Ulm, Germany. He left vivid and detailed descriptions of his pilgrimages to Palestine and also in 1489 authored a book on the history of Swabia, entitled Historia Suevorum.

He made his early studies under the Dominicans at Basle and Ulm, where he spent most of his life.

"Faber" is the Latin nominative singular form of his surname. He is often referred to as "Fabri," the Latin genitive singular, i.e. the possessive form, because his name appears this way in the title of his book, "Fratris Felicis Fabri Evagatorium in Terræ Sanctæ, Arabiæ et Egypti peregrinationem."
