Even in ancient Roman Times, travellers would make an obesiance -known as proskynema. The Slavs have in their Orthodox faith, and Muslim religious orders, certain sites or places on roadways to acknowledge awe and piety (Lynn Meskell- Archeologies of Memories) to somehow lessen the dangers lurking in local deities and lands- in other words praying or appealing for safe conduct from the raw male violence consuming our planet.
