In my PhD undertaking, which is part of the project “The Emergence of Sacred Travel” at Aarhus University (, I focus on the relationship between sacred travel and urban development in the Roman Near East. Sanctuaries attracted movement, which affected not only the area within the temenos walls, but all areas it passed through. I aim to examine what effects movement to urban sanctuaries had on city structures, and how these can be traced on the basis of the archaeological record. And – vice versa – how this movement affected a religious experience when it took place in an urban setting and how it contributed to the perception of boundaries and ties between city and sanctuary.
