Sacred Journeys Online Global Conference
Between 29th June and 3rd July, University of Primorska and University of Indiana organized the 7th international conference dedicated to pilgrimage and tourism, entitled Sacred Journeys.
Due to the circumstances, instead of going to Piran (Slovenia), the participants spent five mornings, afternoons or evenings – depending on the participants’ time zone – in front of computer screens and illuminated the various aspects of past and modern pilgrimage practices. In their presentation, Camino as Sacred Journey? Some Reflections from Slovenia, Špela Ledinek Lozej and Nataša Rogelja Caf presented footprints of past pilgrimages to Santiago de Compostela in Galicia (Spain) in historical sources, folk songs, literature, and fine arts, as well as the recent revival of pilgrimages, either to Galicia or on the ways of Saint James in Slovenia.
