The effect the pilgrimages had on the construction and designs of the churches was for several reasons. First of all, they were built in order to easily display holy objects. As well, the windows were on display as well, since most of them were stained glass depictions of the Bible. They were built with size in mind, as there would need to be room for the regular churchgoers, as well as the pilgrims. This massive size of some of the churches also enforces the presence of a holy being, which would reinforce the site’s position as an important site.
