Nadjaf, grand site de pèlerinage chiite pour les vivants et… pour les morts

Abstract : Najaf, a city located 160 km south of the Iraqi capital Baghdad, holds a very important place as a pilgrimage city and the starting point of the main annual Shiite procession. In addition, its function as a devotional pilgrimage is complemented doubly, on the one hand, by what are known as long "theological pilgrimages" and, on the other hand, by a final post-mortem pilgrimage of the remains of believers.
