Geographers And Pilgrimages: Changing Concepts In Pilgrimage Tourism Research
Pilgrimage is one of the basic and oldest population mobilities in the human world, and it has wide implications: political, social, cultural and economic. In this paper, geographical research on pilgrimage is reviewed, with attention to relevant findings from neighbouring disciplines. The aim of this research is to examine key issues, arguments and conceptualisations regarding the research of pilgrimage. This is in order to indicate the shifts that the study of pilgrimage has undergone. As part of this goal the research will also attempt to point out the dedifferentiation between the various types of researchers dealing with pilgrimage. It has become clear that the study of pilgrimage shifted towards blurring between tourism and pilgrimage, namely, secular pilgrimage and religious pilgrimage. Dedifferentiation has penetrated this study in terms of its features and its multidisciplinary treatment by researchers. Copyright (c) 2009 by the Royal Dutch Geographical Society KNAG.
