The mention of the “dress of Arab style” is of the utmost interest. The pilgrims—at least the wealthy ones like Stephen Praun— apparently did not wear their own European clothes, but put on local costumes wherever they traveled. The decision to undertake this kind of clothing assimilation was influenced not only by different climatic conditions, but was adopted for safety reasons. ” The pilgrims did not want to be immediately recognized as foreigners, so they took off their European coats and robes that would have functioned like moving advertisements inviting robbers and swindlers.
