Religious Pilgrimages

Getting Started

     Your professor has given you an assignment to do a research paper about a religious pilgrimage. Below are some questions to consider before you begin your research.

  • What is the background of the pilgrimage?   What was the basis of the pilgrimage?
  • What happens on the pilgrimage?  Are there certain customs or rituals associated with the pilgrimage?
  • What happens after the Pilgrimage? Do the pilgrims receive any benefits for completing the pilgrimage?  For example,do they receive  forgiveness of sins or enter a new phase of the religion?
  • Were there any issues that affected the pilgrimage?  Did they come across cultural or political obstacles that made the journey difficult to complete?
