Event description

Description

Book Club with lunch provided

We will discuss Ian Bradley’s beautifully illustrated book that explores the origins and theologies of pilgrimage and share our own experiences. This event is part of our Perspectives on Pilgrimage trilogy.

"Ian Bradley 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 and Herzegovina, and Poland."
