Pilgrimage: Past & Present in the World Religions
Simon Coleman (au); John Elsner (au). A fascinating guide through the vast & varied cultural territory that pilgrimages have covered across the ages around the world. Examines the multiple forms pilgrimage has taken over its long history, looking at it both as a physical journey through time & space, & as a metaphor for the pilgrim’s search for his or her religious identity. The first book to look at the phenomenon & experience of pilgrimage through the multiple lenses of history, religion, sociology, anthro. & art history. First-hand accounts of modern-day pilgrims run alongside folk-tales & narratives of the crusades to reveal the common structures & singular features of sacred travel from ancient times to our own. Over 100 photos.
