ITALY, GREECE, AND THE OTTOMAN EMPIRE IN EUROPE

SEPTEMBER-AUGUST

Experiences, OUP, 1969:

September-August

2-3,000 miles on foot in a little under a year

Nowhere, as far as I know, does Toynbee present a complete account of his Wanderjahr, though he writes about it at some length in Experiences. His ephemerides are presumably at the Bodleian.

Hellenism, The History of a Civilization, OUP, 1959:

September-August

“In 1911-12 […] I had travelled on foot (the best way) over the country round Rome as far as Tarquinii (Corneto), Hispellum (Spello), and Caieta (Gaeta), and over Continental European Greece as far north as Pharsalus and the Ambracian Gulf; and I had also walked over the eastern two-thirds of the island of Crete and over the Athos peninsula.”

Crete was already Greek. Athos was still part of the Ottoman Empire.

I  FIRST VISIT TO ITALY

SEPTEMBER-NOVEMBER

A Study of History, Vol IX, OUP, 1954 (footnote):

September 30

Coastal train between Genoa and Rome

“After returning, with indifference, the stare of a Leaning Tower of Pisa, which had peered in at him through his railway-carriage window looking just as it had always looked in the pictures of it, he was thrilled to find himself crossing the Arno into territory that had lain within the frontiers of the Roman Commonwealth since before the outbreak of the First Romano-Punic War. ‘Henceforth’, he found on the 20th May, 1950, that he had entered in his ephemerides for the 30th September, 1911, ‘I know every stage of the way, and can always tell where we are by the look of the country. Cecina, with distant Volterra mountains to the left … O pulcherimma Maritima Tusciae – haec vera Italia, non Ligures neque Taurini.’”

A Study of History, Vol IX, OUP, 1954 (footnote):

October 30

“The present writer […] had been content with a Pisgah sight of Assisi caught from Spello on the 30th October, 1911.”

A Study of History, Vol IX, OUP, 1954 (footnote):

November 14

“The writer [traversed] the stretch of country […] from Ostia to the gap between Terracina and Monte Circello […] by train on the 14th November, 1911.”

A Study of History, Vol X, OUP, 1954:

November 16

“A day’s march from Terracina to Formia […].”

II  FIRST VISITS TO GREECE AND TO TURKEY (MACEDONIA)

NOVEMBER-AUGUST

The Western Question in Greece and Turkey, A Study in the Contact of Civilizations, Constable, 1922:

November-August

“Just before the Balkan Wars, I spent nine months (November 1911 to August 1912) travelling on foot through the old territories of Greece, as well as in Krete and the Athos Peninsula.”

A Study of History, Vol IX, OUP, 1954 (footnote):

November 20

“On the 20th November, 1911, he found his ship travelling up the Gulf of Corinth, threading its way through an isthmian canal, and breaking out into the Saronic Gulf of the Aegean Sea, to confront the pilgrim dramatically with the converging view of serried classic sites closing in round him at point-blank range: Salamis, Aegina, Methana, Megara, Cithaeron, Peiraeus, Lycabettus, Hymettus, Laurium.”

A Study of History, Vol IX, OUP, 1954 (footnote):

December 10

“On the 10th December, 1911, four students of the British Archaeological School at Athens, one of whom was the writer of this Study, [walked] from Sunium to Athens between the dawn and the dusk of a winter’s day. Starting from Sunium at 6.30 a.m., our party reached Athens as night was falling. We should have arrived in daylight if, when approaching Vári, we had not wasted an hour or so by swerving off the track and scouring the south-eastern spurs of Hymettus in a vain search for the Cave of Pan.”

A Study of History, Vol X, OUP, 1954:

January 10

“On the 10th January, 1912, […] he sat musing on one of the twin summits of the citadel of Pharsâlus, with his eyes ranging away to the peaks of Pelion, Ossa, and Olympus over the downs of Cynoscephalae – the crouching Dog’s Heads […].”

A Study of History, Vol X, OUP, 1954 (footnote):

A Study of History, Vol X, OUP, 1954:

March 19

“At the east end of the Island of Crete on the 19th March, 1912, as he rounded the shoulder of the last mountain on his path from Khandrà to Palaíkastro, the same twentieth-century Western student of History suddenly sighted the ruins of a baroque villa […].”

A Study of History, Vol X, OUP, 1954:

May 23

“On the 23rd May, 1912, […] he sat musing on the summit of the citadel of Mistrà, with the sheer wall of Mount Taÿgetus bounding his horizon in the western quarter of the compass, towards which he was bound, and the open vale of Sparta stretching away in the opposite eastern quarter, from which he had made his way that morning.”

A Study of History, Vol II, OUP, 1934 (footnote):

Summer

“He first visited Macedonia in the summer of 1912, at the end of a visit to the Kingdom of Greece within the frontiers as they then stood. Since the standard-gauge railway which now links Athens with Salonica had not been completed at that date, he travelled from the Peiraeus to Salonica by sea.”

A Study of History, Vol IX, OUP, 1954 (footnote):

June

Mount Athos

A Study of History, Vol X, OUP, 1954 (footnote):

July 21

“He had walked across the perilously vulnerable railway viaduct over the gorge of the River Asopus at Elefterokhóri, where the sole railway running from Athens to the Graeco-Turkish frontier leaped across a chasm to come to earth again along the eastern flank of the citadel of Trachis.”

So he is back in Greek territory again.

Return to England (starting journey where?), via Ottoman Dürres (Durazzo) and the Austrian Adriatic ports of Cattaro, Ragusa and Trieste; then overland, via Salzburg, to Flushing (Holland); thence to Folkestone; stopping at least in Cattaro, Ragusa and Trieste.

Summer

“I was just in time [in 1912] to see the Turkish flag still flying over Salonica and Durazzo. Perhaps that can hardly count as a visit to the Turkey of to-day.”

A Study of History, Vol VII, OUP, 1954:

September 17

“On Saturday, 17 September, 1921, I was travelling with my schoolfellow and life-long friend Theodore Wade-Gery in the Orient Express en route from Constantinople to England. Before dawn we had been awakened by the rumbling of our train as it crossed the bridge over the Maritsa, below Adrianople, and, for the rest of that day, we were travelling on westward up the valley of a river that had once been famous as the Hebrus.”

TO JAPAN AND BACK

JULY-JANUARY

A Journey to China, or Things Which Are Seen, Constable, 1931 and others:

In July 1929 Toynbee set off on a journey to Kyoto for the third conference of the Institute of Pacific Relations. He travelled car from London, or from Calais, to Constantinople (his third visit to Turkey proper). His wife drove a Ford, he helped occasionally, and two of their sons accompanied them.

From Constantinople he continued alone by train through Turkey and Syria, by bus from Damascus to Baghdad, by train to Basra, by boat from Basra to Karachi, overland to Bombay, and from Bombay to Shimonoseki by sea via Colombo, Penang, Singapore, Hong Kong and Shanghai. He landed at Kobe on October 18 or 19.

From Japan he did a side trip (November 14 to January 4) to Korea, Manchuria and China proper (Shimonoseki to Busan, then Shanghai to Kobe).

The journey home (January 11 to 29) was by ferry from Tsuruga to Vladivostok, and by train through Russia, Poland, Germany and Belgium.

Hellenism, The History of a Civilization, OUP, 1959:

July-October

“In 1929 I travelled, via Ankara and the Cilician Gates, to the two northern cities of the Seleucis, Antioch-on-Orontes and Seleucia Pieria, en route, through Aleppo and Damascus, for Basra and Japan.”

ROUND THE WORLD

February 1956-August 1957

Hellenism, The History of a Civilization, OUP, 1959:

“In a journey round the world from east to west in 1956-7 […] we first struck the post-Alexandrine Hellenic World in February 1957 at Arikamedu, the Hellenic ‘factory’ on the south-east coast of India, just south of Pondichéry. Between that date and the beginning of August 1957, we visited Takashasila (Taxila) and Purushapura (Peshawar) in Gandhara, the capitals of the Kushan Empire; I travelled from Babylon to within sight of the Caspian Gates, up the great north-east road which was the Seleucid monarchy’s spinal cord, as it had been the Persian Empire’s; and, from a base of operations in Beirut (the Phoenician city and Roman colony Berytus), I also visited Hatra and Arbela, and […] Petra and Palmyra; the two southern cities of the Seleucis: Laodicea (Lattaqieh) and Apamea-over-Orontes; the Phoenician cities Aradus (Ruad) and Antaradus (Tartus); and a number of places in Coele Syria: Baalbek and the springs of Orontes and of Jordan; the cities of the imperial age of Hellenic history in the Jabal Druz and the Hauran; Philadelphia (ʿAmman), Gerasa, and Gadara in the Decapolis; Byblos, Sidon, and Tyre on the Phoenician coast; Gaza and Raphia on the Philistine coast; and finally the walled city of Jerusalem, whose street-plan reveals that of Hadrian’s Aelia Capitolina.”

TRAVEL ACCOMPLISHED AND UNACCOMPLISHED

Experiences, OUP, 1969:

“Ever since 1911 I have always travelled as often and as long and as far as I have been able. This is the one activity to which I have given precedence over my otherwise paramount activity of writing.”

A Study of History, Vol IX, OUP, 1954:

“Though he had three times been shunted into and out of Venice by train en route between Calais and Constantinople, he had not set foot in Venice till the third of these occasions – on the 30th April, 1923, between the hours of 5.0 and 6.0 A.M. – and had then failed to advance farther than the pair of Late Roman Emperors in porphyry who embrace one another on the threshold of St. Mark’s”.

But that’s a long way from the station. Did he not go into St Mark’s?

He says “en route between Calais and Constantinople”, but it is not clear whether he means on his way east or on his way home. The 1923 occasion was on his way home. We know nothing else about his route in either direction.

In 1921 he had arrived in Athens and proceeded to Turkey as a war correspondent. After nine months he travelled home from Constantinople on the Orient Express. We know nothing else about his journey in either direction. He might have been shunted “into and out of Venice” on either occasion.

In 1911-12 he did not visit Constantinople. Could he in 1911 have got off a Constantinople-bound train in Venice? Unlikely, since he travelled to Rome from Genoa. He then sailed to Greece from Italy. The first part of his journey home was up the Adriatic. Did he visit Venice after Trieste by getting onto a train which had come from Constantinople?

Did he ever visit Venice after 1923? Why did it make so little impression on him?

A Study of History, Vol X, OUP, 1954:

“In A.D. 1952 the writer’s curiosity was also still being stimulated through still being tormented by longings to make his pilgrimage to historic points on the face of the Oikoumenê on which he had never yet set eyes or which had once tantalized him with a Pisgah sight. He had seen Assisi from Spello on the 30th October, 1911, without ever having succeeded in reaching Assisi at any time during the next forty years. He had been shunted in and out of Venice on the Orient Express three times without ever having come nearer to Saint Mark’s than into the presence of the pair of Roman emperors in porphyry who stood clasped in a mutual embrace outside a door that was barred and bolted at 5.30 a.m. He had twice passed Qāramān by train without having had time, either on the 31st August, 1929, or on the 13th November, 1948, to break his journey in order to view the interior of those romantic citywalls and press on, beyond, across Cilicia Tracheia to Selefkeh. On the 14th September, 1929, he had gazed longingly up the River Karun into Persia while his ship bore him on inexorably, past the confluence of the Kārūn with the Shatt-al-ʿArab, en route from Basrah to Karachi. On the Great Wall of China, at the Nankow Pass, he had had to turn back without being able to pursue the Wall on its snakelike westward course towards a terminus thirteen hundred miles and more away. And he had never yet come near to setting eyes on Trier, Ravenna, Monte Vulture [footnote: Climbed on the 7th October, 1953, while this page was in the press.], Yannina, Rhodes, Diyārbekīr, Qars, Ani, Van, Ispahan, Yazdikhwast, Persepolis, Shīrāz, Khotan, Turfan, the Najd, the Yaman, Abyssinia, Qayrawān, the High Atlas, Cholula, Mayaland, [footnote: Thanks to a grant from the Rockefeller Foundation for travelling with an eye to producing a revised edition of the present work, the writer and his wife had now visited Cholula on the 20th April, 1953, and Palenque, Chichén Itzá, Uxmál, and Kabah between the 7th and the 14th May of the same year, and were planning to visit the Andean World in the autumn of A.D. 1956.] Easter Island, or the hyper-cyclopean masonry of the Andean highlands.”

A Study of History, Vol X, OUP, 1954 (footnote):

“By A.D. 1952 the present writer had already thrice visited Brusa, but he had not yet set foot in either Jerusalem or Agra.”

A Study of History, Vol X, OUP, 1954:

“The glory of God, declared [footnote: Psalm xix. 1.] in the beauty of die unbegreiflich hohen Werke [footnote: Goethe: Faust, l. 249.] upon which the puny works of Man have been embroidered, was revealed to me when I saw Parnassus and Helicon and the Acrocorinthus from the Gulf of Corinth; the Acropolis of Athens from round the shoulder of Salamis; Olympus from Dhomokó (a white peak floating on air); Taÿgetus, stern-on, from Dhimitsána; the mountains of Crete from the crater-rim of Santorin, as they reared their heads out of the sea in the sudden visibility lent to them by nightfall; the Sun setting through the Golden Gate at San Francisco; the Via Appia Antica and the Inland Sea of Japan in the moonlight; Nara haunted by its holy deer; monasteries perched like eyries on the crags of Athos; cenotaphs of the heroes of Japan under the shadow of giant cryptomerias on Koya San; the Great Wall of China wriggling like a snake over billowy mountains; the Roman Wall crowning the crags at Howsteads; the Siebengebirge writhing down on to the Great North European Plain; the Great North Road running out of Seoul to seek Peking; the Rocky Mountains rushing, for an hour before we reached them, to meet our aeroplane at a speed of three hundred miles an hour; the skyline of New York from the eastern approaches; the battlements of the Kremlin at 2.30 a.m. on a winter’s night; Lake Baikal with the Sun setting behind its engirdling mountains, as the train picked its way round the southern shore; the valley of the Connecticut River clad in its autumn scarlet and gold; the Mongol Valley of the Shilka and the Ottoman valley of the Hebrus; Boghazqal‘eh offering a grander stage than Hisārlyq for the Second Book of The Aeneid; the apparition, between serried palm-groves and serried palm-groves, of majnūn wharves and refineries at Abadān; Cologne Cathedral looming up at the end of a transcontinental journey home to Western Christendom from Vladivostok; the purple citadel of Jodhpur and the blue sky piercing rose-red marble fretworks at Ahmadabad; the ruins of Rievaulx Abbey from the terrace above; the Sainte Chapelle; Chartres Cathedral; Durham Cathedral seen stern-on from across the river, and the overwhelming first impression of the giant round columns, weirdly carved in hypnotizing patterns; Waynflete’s chantry in the cloisters of the College of St. Mary de Winton prope Winton; the ilex in the cloisters of the College of St. Mary de Winton ad Oxon; the Ayía Sophía, the Küchük Ayía Sophía, and the mosque of Mehmed Sököllü Pasha in Istanbul; the tiles in the mosque of Rüstem Pasha; the Qahrīyeh Jāmi‘sy with its live mosaics; the Green Mosque at Brusa; the masonry of Aleppo; the Altar and Temple of Heaven at Peking; the Pyramids of the Sun and Moon at Teotihuacán; the church-crowned pyramid at Cholula; Palenque defying the tropical forest; the thirsty cities of the Puuc; Monte Alban, at whose epiphany in his majesty the Acropolis of Sardis dwindles to the stature of a mole-hill; the cock-crows rising, faint but clear, from a sleepy city far below, as the dawn breaks upon the summit of the citadel of Afyūn Qāra Hisār; the blue wall of Taurus rising up sheer on either hand, as we sight it at the watershed en route from Nigdeh to the Cilician Gates; the bust of Antiochus the Great and the statue of Julian the Apostate in the Louvre; the bust of Nefertiti in the Reichsmuseum at Berlin.”

Hellenism, The History of a Civilization, OUP, 1959:

“The gaps in my first-hand knowledge of the Hellenic World are large and serious. I have not yet seen Magna Graecia, Sicily, or Tunisia; Epirus or Paeonia (the present Jugoslav Macedonia); Amphipolis or Philippi or Mount Pangaeus; Rhodes, Caria, or Lycia; the Ukraine or Egypt (the two main sources of the Hellenic World’s grain-supply); or Bactria or the Paropanisadae (both now in Afghanistan).”

He would visit some of these places later: Afghanistan in 1960, Egypt in 1961, “the Mezzogiorno” in 1962.

With Philip Toynbee, Comparing Notes, A Dialogue across a Generation, Weidenfeld & Nicolson, 1963:

“PT: Would you go and lecture in Russia if asked?

AT: Oh yes, I would. […] But if I were asked to go to South Africa at present, no. If I were asked to go to Southern Rhodesia, I suppose the answer would be no, again.”

He passed through the USSR in 1930, but did not visit any part of the communist world after the war. He never visited South Africa or Rhodesia. He visited Israel in 1957, but did not lecture there. He visited Nazi Germany twice and Fascist Italy at least once. Did he ever visit Spain?

A Study of History refers to some travels. There are details in The Western Question in Greece and Turkey, A Journey to China, An Historian’s Approach to Religion, East to West, Hellenism, Between Oxus and Jumna, The Present-Day Experiment in Western Civilization, America and the World Revolution, The Economy of the Western Hemisphere, Hannibal’s Legacy, Between Niger and Nile, Change and Habit, Acquaintances, Between Maule and Amazon, Experiences, Some Problems of Greek History, letters to The Times, Susan Morton’s bibliography, the correspondence with Columba Cary-Elwes, and William McNeill’s biography.

Morton should be used carefully here. Presenting a paper to a conference or symposium is not the same as attending it. An interview broadcast on a foreign television channel and then printed might have been recorded in London.
