Overview of tombs of Jerusalem pilgrims

This page presents an overview of the tomb monuments of Jerusalem pilgrims. Most are recognizable by their display of pilgrimage attributes, others were included because they are known to be of Jerusalem pilgrims. Neither are all tombs still in existance: use has been made of other sources as well, notably Buchelius's Monumenta. Note that no attempt has been made to present a complete collection of tombs in any category, these are only the objects encountered while doing research on the pilgrimage portraits. Where possible, links have been made to these portraits, or to the MeMO-database. The tombs are ordered on location.
