I don’t understand this History question and need help to study.
Using the Internet, the module material, and other texts discuss the importance of pilgrimage in the construction and function of Gothic churches? Can you find some unique relics that are housed in Gothic churches? What is a medieval pilgrimage? Is this still practiced today? Can you think of modern day religious and/or secular “pilgrimages”? There is no question that pilgrimage provoked the construction of larger churches and inspired the Romanesque and Gothic basilica designs. The pilgrims undertaking their journeys to sacred sites in order to visit holy things would often sleep inside the basilicas. The pilgrimage to Santiago de Compostella was the most important of all pilgrimages in the West (next to the Holy Land). Christians believed that the church there contained the relics of the Apostle James. Best regards, -Caroline
