Jonathan Sumption (au)
In a fascinating work of history, Jonathan Sumption brings alive the traditions of pilgrimage prevalent in Europe from the beginning of Christianity to the end of the 15th century. Vividly describing such major destinations as Jerusalem, Rome, Santiago de Compostela & Canterbury, he examines both major figures -- popes, kings, queens, scholars, villains -- & the common people of their day. With great sympathy he evokes their achievements & failures, & addresses the question of what motivated such extraordinary quests. Illustrations. “The first work of a brilliant young scholar of medieval literature.” “Sumption is a gifted narrator, a careful scholar & a brave man.” “Fascinating & entertaining.”
