The Beheading of Saint Baudilus

The pilgrim is easily recognized by his travel clothing and, especially, by the pilgrimage badges that became public demonstrations of the religious and pious objectives of the rite of passage. They constituted a code that all understood. We cannot forget, what’s more, that in the luggage of the pilgrim also traveled some coins that, on occasions, were offered up to the sanctuary upon arrival, as has been shown by the finds from the confessio of Saint Peter’s in the Vatican.
