📒Pilgrimage ✍ Simon Coleman
✏Pilgrimage Book Summary : From the Great Panathenaea of ancient Greece to the hajj of today, people of all religions and cultures have made sacred journeys to confirm their faith and their part in a larger identity. This book is a fascinating guide through the vast and varied cultural territory such pilgrimages have covered across the ages. The first book to look at the phenomenon and experience of pilgrimage through the multiple lenses of history, religion, sociology, anthropology, and art history, this sumptuously illustrated volume explores the full richness and range of sacred travel as it maps the cultural imagination. The authors consider pilgrimage as a physical journey through time and space, but also as a metaphorical passage resonant with meaning on many levels. It may entail a ritual transformation of the pilgrim's inner state or outer status; it may be a quest for a transcendent goal; it may involve the healing of a physical or spiritual ailment. Through folktales, narratives of the crusades, and the firsthand accounts of those who have made these journeys; through descriptions and pictures of the rituals, holy objects, and sacred architecture they have encountered, as well as the relics and talismans they have carried home, Pilgrimage evokes the physical and spiritual landscape these seekers have traveled. In its structure, the book broadly moves from those religions--Judaism, Christianity, and Islam--that cohere around a single canonical text to those with a multiplicity of sacred scriptures, like Hinduism and Buddhism. Juxtaposing the different practices and experiences of pilgrimage in these contexts, this book reveals the common structures and singular features of sacred travel from ancient times to our own.

📒Pilgrimage ✍ Ian Bradley
✏Pilgrimage Book Summary : This concept of the Christian pilgrimage has its origins in the Exodus of the Jews from ancient Egypt, but it has changed and adapted with the passing centuries. In medieval times millions of pilgrims spent months traveling across Europe to visit holy cities and shrines, and today a modern revival has blurred the lines between pilgrimage and tourism and made places such as Iona, Taize and Santiago di Compostella contemporary meccas. This fascinating volume offers a history of the pilgrimage over the past two millennia, including common routes in Ireland, Scotland, England, Wales, Norway, France, Spain, Italy, Bosnia-Herzogovina, and Poland. Information on the holy walks themselves is offered along with vivid personal accounts and prayers from pilgrims that help to bring to life one of the most vibrant expressions of Christian spirituality.

📒Pilgrimage ✍ John Ure
✏Pilgrimage Book Summary : 'There are three things that can neither be recommended nor discouraged -- marriage, war and a voyage to the Holy Sepulchre-- they may begin well and end very badly.' Medieval pilgrim, Eberhard, Count of Wurtemburg, on his return from Jerusalem in 1480 From his starting-point of travel and adventure, using contemporary accounts, John Ure relates the stories of medieval Christian pilgrimage during the 500 years of its peak between 1066 and 1536. Through the often forgotten contemporary records of Erasmus, John of Gaunt and Margery Kempe among others, he brings to life a colourful cast of characters. Embracing also military expeditions described as religious journeys, Ure recounts tales of armed expeditions such as the Albigensian Crusade and the Pilgrimage of Grace. And considers pilgrimage's literary and allegorical manifestations via Sir John Mandeville and John Bunyan. Ultimately, he uses his practised skills as a travel writer to give vignettes of these pilgrim routes today, some accessible and popular, others as remote and haunting as in medieval times.
