Moses or China
This chapter sums up the key findings of this study on pilgrimage and pilgrim narrative during the French Renaissance. The findings reveal that pilgrims in the Renaissance French literature invariably figure as exemplary as readers because they misunderstand themselves, their bodies, and the nature of both faith and the world. The result also indicates that despite the differences of the pilgrimage narrative examined in this study, their authors were involved in intimately-related projects and they all believed in the importance of narrative.
