This contribution explores the topos of the Pilgrim and the Tourist, and examines how it has developed, how, and in which contexts, it was used and appropriated. For this purpose a compact fourfold typology of the topos is offered. In the first three, we see a clear movement from divergence toward convergence. In the last type we are beyond the topos. The Pilgrim and the Tourist are no longer poles of a coherent scale or taxonomy; rather, they are accents in a complex whole of ritual and cultural dynamics, in which they can flow into each other.
