About

Humanity has as long as we can trace it sanctified places, which have
become subject to pilgrimage, reverence and conflicts. In recent years,
journeys to pilgrimage sites have increased extensively on the global
level. Abandoned Catholic pilgrim trails have been taken into use and
are now targets of millions of tourists annually. Around the cities of
Jerusalem, Mecca and Amritsar, full-scale tourist industries have
emerged. The course introduces key concepts such as pilgrimage and
religious tourism, highlighting these phenomena on the basis of current
research.
