Pilgrimage — walking the faithful to worship at the holy places, known in ancient times; Pilgrimage is based on the belief in what prayer is more valid in certain areas that have a particular relevance to the gods. So the Greeks and Romans were going to remote temples, the Germans — in sacred groves, the Jews in the great feasts went to Jerusalem. At the time of the Christian pilgrimage is part of the habit in the IV. following the example of St. Helen, who went to worship in the direction of where he lived and taught the Savior, and erected there the Lord’s Cross.

By the end of the XV century. noticeable change in the pilgrimage, which caused the weakening of the movement. The reasons for this reduction should be considered a taking of Constantinople by the Turks, who strongly hindered the penetration of Russian in the holy land, and also the fact that, Russian, finding only his people truly — Orthodox holy guard against foreign influence and find holiness in the inner search for God. Due to the weakening of pilgrimage permanently cease and writings pilgrimage that continues until the second half of the XVI century., When once again revived the pilgrimage, on the initiative of the Moscow government to send people to the East with the instructions or alms.

The end of the XVIII century. contributed little pilgrimage and did not leave significant descriptions. Century XIX leave the description traveling Bronnikova «Travel notes and brothers Veshnjakova myadynskago merchant Mikhail Novikov,» and an anonymous note that belonged DV Dashkov. At the same time, made the pilgrimage and AN Ants, Norov, Archimandrite Leonid, AV Eliseev and TI Filippov to study in Palestine.
