About this item

This book covers the ideological motives and religious perceptions behind travel to sites prescribed with sanctity in Judaism, Christianity and Islam. It covers sites which have drawn pilgrims and religious tourists to them for hundreds of years, and seeks to provide an understanding of the complex world of religiously motivated travel. Beginning with contemporary perspectives of pilgrimage across these religions, it then discusses management aspects such as logistics, infrastructure, malevolent behavior and evangelical volunteers.

This book:
- Provides a collection of new, contemporary perspectives on pilgrimage
- Reviews the ideological motives, history, mental health, and religious perceptions of tourism to holy cities
- Contains practical applications, models and illustrations of religious tourism and pilgrimage management from a variety of international and academic perspectives

Written by subject experts, this book addresses cultural sustainability for researchers and practitioners within religious tourism, religious studies, geography and anthropology.
