The author presents medieval roads to churches as public areas ranging from prestigious alleys to simple dusty roads. He refers to sermons which criticised luxurious dresses, and especially long trains, with which ladies swept the dust on the way to the church and inside. He discusses symbols located along roads leading to churches, such as gravestones, inscriptions, reliefs and spolia, which added to the prestige and fame of the donors and their families. He also analyses municipal regulations which emphasised the festive character of roads to churches as well as the necessity to keep them clean.
