More than 400 million people embark annually on pilgrimages with numbers steadily increasing. Pilgrimage is one of the most ancient practices of humankind and is associated with a great variety of religious and spiritual traditions, beliefs and sacred geographies. The Sacred Journeys 7th Global Conference at the University of Primorska, Piran, Slovenia, will bring together pilgrimage and religious tourism scholars from around the globe. With an inter-disciplinary focus, we welcome papers on all topics related to this theme, including religious and secular topics.
