Understanding (subjective) experience of encountering another reality, the sacred, and the perception of the sacred, implies not only the acceptance of the belief that the sacred exists in itself and that it is located in place, in the context of the pilgrimage phenomenon, but also one’s own experience of the belief. The problems of research and understanding of direct experiences (not only pilgrimage experiences), the mechanisms that trigger them and their practical effect, are usually interpreted through methodological or interpretational limits. On the example of several elements of the anthropology of pilgrimage, the introductory paper offers a perspective that the issue of cultural-anthropological dealings with experience lies primarily in the interdisciplinary valuing of experiences of cultural anthropologists themselves. The thesis is further discussed by several colleagues whose research is focused on religious themes.
