Abstract: Pilgrimages figured prominently among the early Jesuits. It was a means of instilling the Ignatian principles of personal interior development and, as such, very effective in spiritual formation. As a result, the early Jesuits came to conceive of themselves primarily as "pilgrims," or as "apostle" who, like St. PauI, traveled from one place to another to spread the teachings of the Gospel. They essentially saw themselves as itinerant preachers, like Jesus and his disciples, and were mainly concerned with inculcating holiness in the hearts of their listeners, converting them to the "true path." This ideal remained central to the Jesuit creed.
