The Pilgrim’s Guide is a student-built website created by HKU undergraduates in the course ARTH2103 Saintly Bodies and Holy Shrines: The Art and Architecture of Medieval Pilgrimage.
For their semester project, students took ownership over individual sites or objects associated with pilgrimage and researched, designed, and authored projects that together map the pilgrimage routes of Europe. The website’s namesake is a twelfth-century guide for pilgrims, considered to be one of the earliest travel guides ever written; however, the name equally refers to the site’s objective to guide the modern-day digital pilgrim in exploring medieval art from their homes.
