About the Society

The International Society for the Study of Pilgrimage Art was founded in 2000 to bring together scholars who explore the art and architecture of pilgrimage in the late Middle Ages. We wish to provide a forum for themes and topics related to that subject, and to share current research. It is our hope to reconstruct more fully the sites in Europe which were goals for those who journeyed in pursuit of experience of the sacred, as it was mediated by works of art created for the cults of saints who were venerated in various regional centers. The artistic expressions which were created to give form to the cults are the objects of our investigation. The Society publishes Peregrinations.
