To put modest pilgrimage sites for four tsaddiqim (holy men) in historical context, the author interviewed the sites' impresarios--some of them also healers --in fieldwork conducted in the 1980s and early 2000s.
While the women function as healers, assisted by their familiar saints, the men have provided a place for people to come to pray and to entreat the tsaddiqim for favour.
