Back To Beijing: The Future Of The Olympic Games, Jennifer Maynard 2019 Brigham Young University

Back To Beijing: The Future Of The Olympic Games, Jennifer Maynard

Marriott Student Review

Just four years ago, the IOC made an unprecedented decision to award Beijing with the 2022 Winter Olympic Games bid, making China the first Asian country ever to host both the Summer and Winter Games. What’s more, prior to this second visit to China, the Olympics will have been held in Pyeongchang (2018) and Tokyo (2020). At the same time that this national superpower has the opportunity to capitalize once again on the all eyes-on-China phenomenon, the IOC has the chance to truly go global.


Historic Trading Routes In Kosovo And Albania And Their Potential In Improving Rural Tourism Through Cross National Approaches, ARNISA KRYEZIU, CAROLINE JAEGER KLEIN 2019 University for Business and Technology - UBT

Historic Trading Routes In Kosovo And Albania And Their Potential In Improving Rural Tourism Through Cross National Approaches, Arnisa Kryeziu, Caroline Jaeger Klein

Rural Heritage - Landscapes and Beyond / PATRIMOINE RURAL: Paysages et au-delà

Trading routes have been aligning different parts of the world since prehistoric times, transporting scarce commodities from one area to another. Primarily, the majority of these routes had military character used during wars in enlarging territories but with the flourishing of trade in agriculture, craftsmanship, and mining, they gained important economic value. Parallel to this exchange of goods, these communication systems expedited influences and cultural exchange in cuisine, traditions, religion, crafts, arts and architecture.

Main centers of present day Kosovo and Albania were part of this dense communication network for trading activities, for example Via Egnatia, Via de Zenta and ...


Pilgrimages Through Time And Space. The Case Of Marian Pilgrimages In Greece, Dimitrios Mylonopoulos, Polyxeni Moira, Spyridon Parthenis 2019 Piraeus University of Applied Sciences, Greece

Pilgrimages Through Time And Space. The Case Of Marian Pilgrimages In Greece, Dimitrios Mylonopoulos, Polyxeni Moira, Spyridon Parthenis

International Journal of Religious Tourism and Pilgrimage

Since ancient times and throughout history, religious sentiment has been one of the motives for people undertaking pilgrimages, seeking to communicate with the divine in sacred places. Travelling for religious reasons fulfilled a spiritual need and their undertaking was considered to be a redeeming action.

It is indeed difficult to identify any other human activity so widespread in space and so resilient in time as undertaking a pilgrimage to shrines. Since antiquity there has been a firm belief that praying or fulfilling one’s religious tasks is more efficient when it takes place in specific sites: in places where gods ...


Perspectives On The Improvement Of Uzbekistan As A Destination For Multi-Confessional Self-Organised Pilgrims, Bakhtiyor Negmatovich Navruz-Zoda, Nutfillo Ibragimov, Akmal Rakhmanov 2019 Bukhara state university

Perspectives On The Improvement Of Uzbekistan As A Destination For Multi-Confessional Self-Organised Pilgrims, Bakhtiyor Negmatovich Navruz-Zoda, Nutfillo Ibragimov, Akmal Rakhmanov

International Journal of Religious Tourism and Pilgrimage

By accenting the tourism industry as one of the most valuable sectors for prosperity and appreciating its potential in new social-economic reforms, the administration of the Republic of Uzbekistan has been making visible steps for its development. Particularly religious tourism and pilgrimage are noted as offering opportunities for modernisation in a global world. Carrying a major geographical role in the connection of main trade routes between East and West, the country became the crossroad of civilisation and religious diffusions. Consequently, with new religious tourism and pilgrimage flows: following the earliest dominating beliefs of Zoroastrianism, and its New Age followers; being ...


Rediscovering The Walisongo, Indonesia: A Potential New Destination For International Pilgrimage, Pierre Fournié 2019 University of Paris-Est Marne-la-Vallée-France

Rediscovering The Walisongo, Indonesia: A Potential New Destination For International Pilgrimage, Pierre Fournié

International Journal of Religious Tourism and Pilgrimage

The current paper explores the tradition of Walisongo, the nine saints or nine friends of God, that according to tradition initiated the islamisation of Java in the XV and XVI centuries. Largely unknown outside of Indonesia, the Wali Songo pilgrimage remains unfamiliar in the archipelago as well.

Besides allowing a deeper understanding of the roots of Indonesian religious history and of the spread and acceptance of Islam, rediscovering the Wali Songo may help to reintroduce a peaceful image of the Muslim world. In such a way, reactivating the tradition of Wali Songo outside of the country but also inside, may ...


Spirituality, Organisational Climate And Religious Tourism, Gilson de Lima Garofalo, Terezinha Filgueiras Pinho, Moacir José Rossetti Júnior 2019 Pontificia Universidade Catolica de Sao Paulo

Spirituality, Organisational Climate And Religious Tourism, Gilson De Lima Garofalo, Terezinha Filgueiras Pinho, Moacir José Rossetti Júnior

International Journal of Religious Tourism and Pilgrimage

This contribution discusses spirituality in the context of organisations and issues that may arise with regard to those who, in the future will act in the field of religious tourism. In this way, it presents a proposal in terms of motivation, joy, inner peace and deeper understanding. Initially the work adopts the deductive method with descriptive research based on literature addressing the spirituality inherent in those who exercise or will carry out activities in this important tourism segment. A survey was carried out to explore the close connections between spirituality and religiousness, and link this to the behaviour and practices ...


Motivations To Visit Jerusalem, Santiago De Compostela And Fatima As Sacred Destinations: A Generational Approach, Carla Silva, José Luís Abrantes, Ram Herstein, Manuel Reis 2019 Polytechnic Institute of Viseu, Portugal

Motivations To Visit Jerusalem, Santiago De Compostela And Fatima As Sacred Destinations: A Generational Approach, Carla Silva, José Luís Abrantes, Ram Herstein, Manuel Reis

International Journal of Religious Tourism and Pilgrimage

The present study analyses in a holistic and multidisciplinary approach the motivations that tourists have to visit sacred places. The goal is to find out what are the key motivational factors that determine their choice. It supplies an extensive literature review focusing on the concept of motivations, which allows us to identify the main reasons that draw people to sites.

The fieldwork of this study includes pilgrims and or tourists at three sacred sites: Fátima (Portugal), Santiago de Compostela (Spain) and Jerusalem (Israel). Fieldwork includes surveys of 633 tourists from different religions visiting these symbolic places who belong to generations ...


Places And Religious Bands: Explorations In Spiritual Tourism, Antonietta Ivona, Donatella Privitera 2019 University of Bari Aldo Moro

Places And Religious Bands: Explorations In Spiritual Tourism, Antonietta Ivona, Donatella Privitera

International Journal of Religious Tourism and Pilgrimage

The musical aspect of religious tourism is currently amongst the less investigated themes. A first survey suggests that although it does not appear to be the main motivation for religious travel, it is a valued component of the experience. The aim of this study is to explore how sounds operate to forge social and spiritual identifications on the principles of Lefebvre’s rhythm analysis (2004).

This paper contributes to the emerging field of experiential tourism research by confirming that religious experiences are not only interior but also involve sensory experiences. It follows that tourists’ sensory experiences should be a key ...


Stakeholder Perceptions Of Religious Tourism And Local Development: Evidence From Lamego (Portugal) Historic Town, Ana Paula Rodrigues, Isabel Vieira, Luciano Ferreira, Rui Madeira 2019 University of Trás-os-Montes and Alto Douro, Portugal

Stakeholder Perceptions Of Religious Tourism And Local Development: Evidence From Lamego (Portugal) Historic Town, Ana Paula Rodrigues, Isabel Vieira, Luciano Ferreira, Rui Madeira

International Journal of Religious Tourism and Pilgrimage

The purpose of this study is to explore the views of different stakeholder groups (visitors, residents and local agents - heritage managers, tour operators, local authorities, Priests and head of the Church, directors of institutions linked to tourism) about the relationship between religion and tourism in a historic town setting. The main purpose is to examine the opinions/views/perceptions of different stakeholder groups about religious tourism and local development.

A mixed methodological (quantitative and qualitative) approach was used in order to analyse the perceptions and opinions of three stakeholders groups. The opinions of visitors (120) and residents (150) were analysed ...


Pilgrimage And Its Perception In A Local Religious Community, Béla Árvavölgyi, Judit Sági 2019 Calvinist Church Congregation of Tahitótfalu, Hungary

Pilgrimage And Its Perception In A Local Religious Community, Béla Árvavölgyi, Judit Sági

International Journal of Religious Tourism and Pilgrimage

In this paper, the authors aim at examining how pilgrimage might positively change the personal life of the participating individual, and the life of the releasing community. In the authors’ perception, where the individual is a member of a local religious community, after returning home he or she reports about his or her experiences to other members of the community; thus one member is positively influencing the community as a whole. This research study is focusing on Christian pilgrimage, however, due to the common nature of pilgrimage in different kind of religions the authors believe that the results of this ...


Cultural Routes Crossing Portugal: History And Traditions, Odete Paiva, Cláudia Seabra, José Luís Abrantes 2019 Polytechnic Institute of Viseu, Portugal

Cultural Routes Crossing Portugal: History And Traditions, Odete Paiva, Cláudia Seabra, José Luís Abrantes

International Journal of Religious Tourism and Pilgrimage

Cultural routes across different regions create real opportunities to improve tourism dynamics, offering tourists more valuable experiences bringing benefits to the entire tourism value chain and to all tourism-related sectors (Perdomo, 2015). This study analyses the potential of a cultural and tourist product based on two routes in the Centre of Portugal, one following the path laid out by the 3rd French Invasion and another following the Historical National Road Nº2. The main goal is to investigate the attractiveness and market potential for the two routes specifically in the domestic market. Based on the results of a questionnaire applied to ...


Creating And Contesting Latter-Day Saint Pilgrimage To Nauvoo, Illinois, Scott Esplin 2019 Brigham Young University - Utah

Creating And Contesting Latter-Day Saint Pilgrimage To Nauvoo, Illinois, Scott Esplin

International Journal of Religious Tourism and Pilgrimage

Members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (frequently referred to as Latter-day Saints or Mormons) share with other faiths a desire to celebrate sites significant to their founding. By memorialising religious sacred space, the Church of Jesus Christ has created a desire among many of its more than sixteen million members to retrace the steps of their early faith leaders as pilgrims. As with other religious sites around the world, Latter-day Saint pilgrimage destinations have also become scenes of contestation. Churches that divided from the original movement offer rival interpretations of the its history and beliefs, leading ...


Pilgrimage And Ancestors: The Importance Of Return, Jörgen Hellman 2019 Gothenburg University

Pilgrimage And Ancestors: The Importance Of Return, Jörgen Hellman

International Journal of Religious Tourism and Pilgrimage

Drawing on ethnographic material from pilgrimages on West Java I argue that understandings of pilgrimage will benefit from including the return home in order to fully appreciate the meaning it holds for pilgrims. If we include into the study an extensive period after coming home, it facilitates situating the practice in a specific socio-cultural context and helps to understand how a pilgrimage partakes in these settings rather than being a ‘ “one off” transient and extraordinary’ event (Reader 2005:249). The meaning of pilgrimage described in the paper is formed by deep seated cultural notions about ancestors and descent. In the ...
