Pilgrimage to the Church of the Holy Sepulchre in Jerusalem
Greek Orthodox pilgrims have, by a special arrangement of the Emperor Manuel's, been permitted passage to Jerusalem and the Holy Sepulchre, even after 1187. Latin pilgrims were only granted that right after the Treaty of Ramla, 2nd September 1192, and at the cost of 10 golden bezants per pilgrim, paid upon entry to the Saracen conquerors. The journey southwards is about a week's ride for a small company, and more like a fortnight's for a larger retinue.
