A Sephardic and Askhenazic World View in the Medieval Hebrew Itineraries by Benjamin of Tudela and Petahya of Regensburg

Both itineraries are supposedly based on the information the traveller brought home, but they are revised in that literary sources have been inserted and there is even a case of censorship in Petahya's account. The goal of their travels remains unclear, but aspects of trade, pilgrimage and the exploration of the possibility for emigration of the Jewish community may have played a role. Benjamin shows an interest in other cultures, reflecting the more open sephardic community, whereas Petahya concentrates on Jewish religion, fitting in with the ashkenazic community.
