This contribution is dedicated to the preliminary presentation of two previously unknown Latin texts, which provide instructions for pilgrims, and are included in the same fifteenth-century manuscript. The first text is devoted to spiritual instructions while the second lists practical ones. After brief introductory notes, the two texts appear in English translation and in their Latin original with a commentary. As this seems to be the first publication of sets of instructions, phrased impersonally and copied independently of travel accounts, it is hoped that this presentation will lead to further research concerning the circulation of such texts and their use.
