The tradition of visiting churches on Holy Thursday is an ancient practice, probably originating in Rome,
where early pilgrims visited the seven major basilicas as penance. They are Saint John Lateran, Saint
Peter, Saint Mary Major, Saint Paul-outside-the-Walls, Saint Lawrence-outside-the-Walls, Saint Sebastian-
outside-the-Walls, and Holy Cross-in-Jerusalem. Pope Boniface VIII revived the tradition in 1300
with the establishment of the Jubilee Year, and Rome became a center for pilgrimages.
