Description

Our panel will discuss several less well-known aspects of medieval pilgrimage, including the identification and significance of intermediate destinations along the pilgrimage routes between major shrine centers, the relationship between the Cistercians and lay pilgrims, and the evolution of ‘pilgrim towns’ along the Camino de Santiago. The panel will therefore shed light on the differing attitudes that existed towards pilgrimage, and highlight the significance of the journeys themselves through the infrastructure that built up on the routes to the shrines.
