Othic Art & the Importance of Pilgrimage
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.
