Pilgrimage in practice: narration, reclamation and healing.

Book cover for Pilgrimage in practice: narration, reclamation and healing.


This book reveals many aspects of the practice of pilgrimage, from its nationalistic facets to its effect on economic development; from the impact of the internet to questions of globalization; and from pilgrimage as protest to pilgrimage as creative expression in such media as film, art and literature. Part I, 'Grounding Pilgrimage', challenges past and present definitions of the sacred journey. Part II, 'Narrating Pilgrimage', contains chapters that explore the telling of stories through various media. In Part III, 'Reclaiming Pilgrimage', contributors discuss spiritual journeys in Europe that include a procession of joy for children, a redemptive practice of mourning, and a search for a mystic saint. Part IV, 'Healing and Reconciling through Pilgrimage', explores historical injustices and their remedies through pilgrimage. The book has 12 chapters and a subject index.
