Item Description...
Pilgrimage was an integral part of both medieval religion and medieval life and, from its origins in the fourth century Mediterranean world, it spread rapidly to Northern Europe as a pan-European devotional phenomenon. Pilgrims and Pilgrimage in the Medieval West draws extensively on original source materials - accounts of pilgrimage, guidebooks, chronicles and wills, covert memos and state documents. It seeks to uncover the motives of the pilgrims themselves. Pilgrimage could be a penance inflicted by a higher authority or an expression of spontaneous devotion; it could be a quest for a cure, or for an indulgence to shorten the pains of Purgatory; it could be an excuse to get away from the stifling domestic routine or from the suspicion of crime; it could even be undertaken for pay. Law courts accepted a bona fide pilgrimage as justification for absence from legal proceedings, and rulers, often pilgrims themselves, usually accepted their obligations to extend safe conduct and freedom from toll to the genuine pilgrim. All these aspects of pilgrimage and others are treated in this study. Special attention has been paid to English pilgrimage at home and abroad, but the reader will also find here a variety of texts from many parts of Europe, including, from Tuscany, previously unpublished archival material.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
A true Inspiration - Every pious pilgrim should read this book.  Aug 16, 2007
Firstly this book is not for the casual tourist who wishes to use the camino as a cheap walking holiday (ther are other books at this site for this pourpose) but for the devot Catholic.

It is not a guide book, in the sense this book is not a directional guide. It does not have maps and photographs.
The book represents a guide for religion and devotion and faith. it teaches you how to conduct yourself by the experience it gives you of other pilgrimages in the past.
The book serves as an invaluable resource for the pilgrim, and will be an inspiration for every catholic seeking the sprit of St James at Santiago.
This book will assist you on your pilgrimage in a very spiritual manner.

The book explains how a pilgrim to St James should conduct himself as an example I illustrate the advice it gives although I have not quoted from the book directly.

The The Pilgrim ought not to grudge another's reputation, nor rejoice over any man's faults; he ought in Christ's love to grieve and be afflicted at his brother's faults, and rejoice over his brother's good deeds. He ought not to be silent before sinners if he sees wrongdoing on his journey.
He who shows another pilgrim to be wrong ought to do so with all tenderness, in the fear of God, . He who is proved wrong or rebuked ought to take it willingly, recognizing his own gain in being set right.
The The Pilgrim ought not to grudge another's reputation, nor rejoice over any man's faults; he ought in Christ's love to grieve and be afflicted at his brother's faults, and rejoice over his brother's good deeds. He ought not to be indifferent or silent before sinners. He who shows another to be wrong ought to do so with all tenderness, in the fear of God, and with the object of converting the sinner. He who is proved wrong or rebuked ought to take it willingly, recognizing his own gain in being set right.
