Theme: “Loca Desiderarta : Sacred Space and Holy Land Pilgrimage in Christian Culture”


In the first half of the fourth century, when the Roman Empire came under Christian rule, people started to flock to the Holy Land to see with their own eyes the venerated places of the Bible. The pilgrims desired, mainly, to visit and touch the sites of Jesus' life and Passion, where he, his mother the Virgin Mary, and his disciples operated. The pilgrimages had a significant impact on the Holy Land in general and on Jerusalem in particular. The flow of pilgrims, who came from near and far, has continued unabated until today and become a colorful component of the Jerusalem landscape. With time, pilgrimage became the focal point of a theological debate on the importance of geographical places and of wandering per se. It also gave birth to the genre of Itineraria literature—our main source of information about the pilgrimage movement and its destinations—and inspired diverse artistic expression as well.
