Description

Recent research on medieval pilgrimage has increasingly focused on factors which shape and direct pilgrim experience, whether on the journey or on arrival at the destination. These factors include books which create anticipation and shape response, whether guidebooks, pilgrim narratives or devotional material; the impact of setting, architecture, material culture and liturgical forms; the importance of sensory experience, the dynamics of pilgrim groups, and the management of sites by their guardians.

This session will draw on current research projects to examine the intersection of these factors, their impact on individuals, and their potential to unlock further understanding of the power of sacred spaces in the Middle Ages.
