Chapter 2 traces Fabri’s transition from Felix Schmid of Zürich to Felix Fabri of Ulm and locates the adult pilgrim and writer in the larger context of his ties within the Dominican order and the city of Ulm, as well as to other religious houses, orders and cities throughout Europe. It then analyses Fabri’s identity as a writer —specifically a writer of sermons, spiritual tracts, and histories, since his pilgrimage writings are only part (albeit a large one) of his greater calling as a Dominican preacher, educator, and pastor. Finally, it considers Fabri’s pilgrimage writings in particular and how they fit within an extensive tradition of late-medieval pilgrimage writing—a tradition of which Fabri himself was aware. The final section of this chapter locates Fabri and his work in their proper social, political, and spiritual contexts.
