We are going on a summer holiday II: Christian pilgrimages and sightseeing from the 5th-15th century

Birgitta Hoffmann

By the late Roman period, the early Christian church had developed the concept of the miracle-working saint, whose help could be procured by visiting his shrine. Lists of famous saints and places were circulated creating a new type of travel literature describing routes and sites worth seeing, starting with Rome and Jerusalem.
This tradition of travel for religious purposes (with a helping of sightseeing) continued and developed through the early middle ages and became a feature throughout the Christian world with considerable infrastructure projects undertaken to facilitate the journeys. Join us to find out, what remains of this early form of tourism and what remains of it today.
