Following the Way: Insights into Pilgrimage

A non-accredited history and heritage course

Course Code

CLL 23/24_NA_113
Course Description

This course will explore the importance of pilgrimage within its religious contexts as a physical journey and a form of inner spirituality, and within its socio-cultural contexts as a quest for meaning. ‘The Prologue’ to The Canterbury Tales and Margery Kempe’s biography will provide a literary framework for medieval pilgrimages, the anchoritic cell an example of inner pilgrimage (Ancrene Wisse; Julian of Norwich), and visual images a mnemonic device for imaginatively re-enacting the Passion, while travel writing and tourism will provide a framework for modern pilgrimage.
