Pilgrimage in the Global Middle Ages: Hospitality and Encounter
Join the Medieval Institute and the Ansari Institute for Global Engagement with Religion for the first in our webinar series on pilgrimage. Why did medieval people go on pilgrimage, how did they travel, and what resources did they need while on the road?

“Pilgrimage in the Global Middle Ages: Hospitality and Encounter” will examine medieval social institutions that supported pilgrims in the Jewish, Christian, Muslim and Chinese Buddhist traditions.

Panelists will include Notre Dame Professors Robin Jensen (Theology), Mun'im Sirry (Theology) and Alexander Hsu (Keough School). They will compare different cultural provisions for hospitality, pilgrims’ experience of encounter along the way, and the sacred art of shrines and holy places.

This webinar will be the first in a series of spring-semester events exploring the practice of pilgrimage, both historically across faith traditions and in present-day work for social justice.

Jan 27, 2023 12:00 PM in Eastern Time (US and Canada)
