Pilgrimage Journal- Final part 2

FINAL EXAM—SEMESTER 2--- Pilgrimage Journal



1. Go to your next stop.

2. Go to this link: and explore books that were written in the medieval period. Then, pick a book you find interesting from the synopsis and write the name of this book in your answer.

3. Then find a location at your stop that you are visiting (like a historical landmark, garden, church/temple, library, etc) and write an entry in which you find the book you like from the above site. Where do you find it? What do you do with it? (be specific and use your imagination—your discussion should be several paragraphs).



  1. You have made it to your final destination (phew!).
  2. Please summarize what you did to get from the last stop (medieval books) to your final destination…this could include having to cut your trip short in order to get there.
  3. Do some mild research on your final destination. You will need to bring a minimum of three pics from your place to the final exam.
    1. one pic showing physical geography
    2. one pic showing historical landmarks
    3. one pic showing a spiritual/religious place of interest (temple, shrine, mosque, etc)

  1. Attach and label pics to your journal. Provide an explanation about what you did while you were at your final destination. What have you learned while on your journey?

Please bring this page, plus your journal and any other item you need to complete your entries, to the exam.

You *may* complete the Medieval Books entry at home, but the final stop entry should not be completed until the exam time.

Final Exam Study Guide

Your final will be 90 minutes long and will consist of two sections. It is 20% of your Semester II grade.

Here are the details:

Part One:
Standard test on Medieval Europe with matching, multiple choice, and short answer/fill in the blank. Most of the questions will be taken from the book test, but there is a short section on cathedrals that will be my creations. In the cathedral section you must identify type of cathedral and label certain parts of it.

This part of the test will take approximately 45 minutes (more or less).

Part Two:
Readying the Pilgrimage Journal to turn in for final grade and answering one final question. You will be able to prep this minimally ahead of time. The details on this one will be given this week in class.

This part of the exam will take approximately 45 minutes (more or less).
