Abstract
The article discusses the experience of Dutch Calvinists traveling through predominantly Catholic parts of Europe on their version of the traditional "Grand Tour" in the 17th century. Despite the popular anti-Catholicism of the day in Protestant Europe, the writings of Dutch travelers are shown to display a relatively evenhanded attitude toward the symbols and rituals of Catholicism in France and Italy, attributed both to practical considerations and the influence of humanism. Dutch travelers are also shown to have incorporated stops at sites of significance to Protestantism on the traditional educational journey.
