Digital media are an everyday part of Christian lives around the world, used to read the Bible, study, pray and build communities. But can a phone become part of a pilgrimage? This talk will share some of the history of Christian pilgrimage, reflect on the ways Christian pilgrims have tried to make digital media part of their journey, consider the movement for "digital fasting", and introduce the work of CODEC's recent Digital Pilgrimage Project
Dr Tim Hutchings was William Leech Research Fellow at CODEC from 2013-2014
