Pilgrimage

Ian Bradley

$30.99

Hardback

This book explores the phenomenon of Christian pilgrimage, pointing to its origins in the Exodus and wilderness experience of the Jews, the medieval heyday when millions of pilgrims spent months travelling across Europe, and the modern revival which has blurred the lines between pilgrimage and tourism and made places such as Iona, Taize and Santiago di Compostella the mecca for contemporary seekers and travellers.

^^Lavishly illustrated, the book begins with the history and then covers pilgrimages in Ireland, Scotland, England, Wales, Norway, France, Spain, Italy, Bosnia-Herzogovina and Poland. Providing a mixture of historical and factual information, and vivid personal experiences together with pilgrims' own accounts and prayers, Ian Bradley brings to life one of the most vibrant expressions of Christian spirituality.

^^Ian Bradley has written more than 30 books, including 4 bestsellers on aspects of Celtic Christianity. He is a noted expert on pilgrimage and was invited by the BBC to be preacher in a recent Radio 4 pilgrimage along the Camino to Santiago. He regularly leads pilgrimages on Iona and around St Andrews.

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.
