Routes to the Holy Land: The early centuries, the Middle Ages and the Balkan itineraries in the era of the crusades

“Humans are the most mobile of animals”. This famous statement by Aristotle aptly refers to one of the strongest forces driving the human soul, an impulse that is both biological and anthropological. In the case of the multi-millenarian march to Jerusalem, Christian society has reinforced this impulse with religious motives: Christ died in the Holy City for the Salvation of mankind, and for two millennia the faithful have been travelling to His Tomb to express their devotion and to wash away their sins.
