Write a 8 pages paper on the pilgrims eulogia of st. symeon the younger. For many other reasons, art and ornaments, for more sumptuous and less imposing reasons, dominated the pilgrim’s holy objects and places of worship.4 Tombs, columns, and grottoes were artistically decorated to give churches and monasteries their raison d’être.5 This document serves to approve or disapprove the hypothetical claim that Pilgrims used artworks to depict their lifestyles, to revere their spiritual superiors and connect them to the spiritual realm. This document critically analyzes the Pilgrim’s Eulogia or Token of the St. Symeon the Younger in the verge understanding the role, if any, of artworks to the lives of Pilgrims.This rounded eulogia with an estimated diameter of 2.5cm and thickness of 0.7cm has the Saint Symeon suspended on a central column which is flanked by long candlesticks on either side.6 The Saint’s attire is a hooded cloak with an indistinct cross.7 Flying above the Saint on either side are angels carrying crowns.8 Each of the angels has the inscription “ATIOC” below them.9 On the right side of the base of the column on which the Saint is perched is the baptism of Christ.10 On the left side of the column’s base are Mary and Christ as a child.11Art in churches and shrines is on its grand scale in imposing and luxury is majorly in the Byzantine pilgrimage.12 However, art also had another equally important scale when it was used as a sign of modesty as Pilgrims requested for souvenirs to take home, in a similar manner to modern tourists. Most Pilgrims hoped to receive the silver of the True Cross even though only a few of them actually expected a gift of such magnitude.13 However, almost all Pilgrims were obligated to receive a eulogy or “blessing” instead. In the early church, this “blessing” was material in the form of a small number of common commodities such as oil, water, or earth.14 These commodities were sanctified by contact with either a holy person or a holy object.&nbsp.
