Pilgrimage in the Middle Ages : A Reader, Paperback / softback Book

Pilgrimage in the Middle Ages : A Reader Paperback / softback

Part of the Readings in Medieval Civilizations and Cultures series


Pilgrimage inspired and shaped the distinct experiences of commoners and nobles, men and women, clergy and laity for over a thousand years.

Pilgrimage in the Middle Ages: A Reader is a rich collection of primary sources for the history of Christian pilgrimage in Europe and the Mediterranean world from the fourth through the sixteenth centuries.

The collection illustrates the far-reaching significance and consequences of pilgrimage for the culture, society, economics, politics, and spirituality of the Middle Ages.

Brett Edward Whalen focuses on sites within Europe and beyond its borders, including the holy places of Jerusalem, and provides documents that shed light upon Eastern Christian, Jewish, and Islamic pilgrimages.

The result is an innovative sourcebook that offers a window into broader trends, shifts, and transformations in the Middle Ages.
