Russian term or phrase: ...at his second pilgrimage...
Could you please suggest which preposition would be best to use “at” or “on”, or maybe something else. I am trying to avoid “during”.

Context: He owed his name to the embroidered red mantle given to him in Jerusalem at his second pilgrimage, in addition to the Gospel.

Thanks Natalie,

I am more than satisfied with the answer. The point is that I had searched the Web before placing the question in KudoZ, but, as you know, search engines omit all prepositions as “stop words”. After I saw your examples from Internet, I “insisted” and Google gave me the phrase with a preposition (It turns out that I only had to add a “+” sign before the preposition).

Thank you again.
