Pilgrim Crossing Borders is a pilgrim relay with many participants from Norway, Sweden, Denmark, Germany, Austria, Italy – and other countries – where we literally join in passing on a specially made pilgrim staff and a special diary from Nidaros to Roma – and then on to Jerusalem. The event will take place in 2015. You can find out more on our blog:

  1. 1. Pilgrims Crossing Borders By Stein Thue Presentation in Rome 17 October 2014
  2. 2. Holy Sites • Jerusalem, one of the oldest cities in the world. Holy to Judaism, Christianity and Islam. The ultimate site of pilgrimage. • Rome, the Eternal City , the Centre of Christendom . Shrines of St Peter and St. Paul. Seat of the Pope. A site of pilgrimage since the 4th century. • Santiago de Compostela, more than 200,000 pilgrims travel to the shrine of St. James in the Cathedral of Santiago de Compostela each year from points all over Europe and other parts of the world. The most visited pilgrim shrine in Europe? • Nidaros, a holy shrine in the far north. Norway’s national sanctuary, burial church for St Olav. Important shrine in the middle ages. Known as ”the Jerusalem of the North”.
  3. 3. All roads lead to Rome • 990: Archbishop Sigeric the Serious (950 - 994) made the pilgrimage to Rome to receive his pallium. • 1157: A guidebook for pilgrims was published by Níkulás Bergsson, the abbot of a monastery in Northern Iceland. A description of the routes from Northern Europe to Rome and Jerusalem. • 1159: Archbishop of Nidaros Øystein Erlendsson travelled from Norway to Rome to receive his pallium from the Pope; as did all the archbishops of Norway before the reformation. • 1236: Annales Stadenses and the Via Romea Albert von Stade wrote a pilgrim guide based on his own journey from Stade to Rome, mentioning the holy sites, the resting places and the distances for each stage.

  6. 6. Pilgrim Values • Our walk is based on hospitality, tolerance, dialogue, solidarity, human rights and peace • We want to tie bonds and build friendship, to cross boundaries literally and metaphorically. • Relgious traditions can create hope, mutual respect and reconciliation • With such values we hope to include participants with diverse backgrounds to meet, walk and talk together. • Being a pilgrim means becoming a "stranger” to gain insight and understanding.
  7. 7. European Cultural Routes “May the faith which has inspired pilgrims throughout history, uniting them in a common aspiration and transcending national differences and interests, inspire us today, and young people in particular, to travel along these routes in order to build a society founded on tolerance, respect for others, freedom and solidarity ” The Declaration that founded the Programme of Cultural Routes of the Council of Europe.
