On Pilgrimage: Sacred Journeys around the World - Jennifer Westwood
Een onmisbaar boek over hoe men een pelgrimsroute loopt - engelstalig

Explores the spiritual dimension of pilgrimage and leads readers through the most-traveled routes, sites, temples, landscapes, and shrines around the world, including Santiago de Compostela, Angkor Wat in Cambodia, and Croagh Patrick in Ireland.

From the original ritual paths of tribal societies, the classical sacred ways of Greece, Egypt, and the East, and the great Christian pilgrimages of the Middle Ages, sacred journeys continue to evolve. A new, more informal and more personal style of pilgrimage has now begun. It reflects the upsurge of interest in sacred places, places of power, and the ancient wisdom of older cultures. On Pilgrimage walks the reader through the twelve stages that are common to all sacred journeys, including the practicalities of getting ready, the adventures, the difficulties, the emotional processes of doubt and hope, the arrival, the climax and the homecoming. It describes both the spiritual and physical progress of pilgrimage, and highlights the stages of the journey through personal accounts, quotations, examples, and meditations from the world's sacred texts. On Pilgrimage also offers a concise guide to the essential sacred routes, sites, temples, landscapes and shrines in all five continents, from Santiago de Compostela in Spain and Angkor Wat in Cambodia to Our Lady of Guadalupe in Mexico and Mount Kailash in Tibet. Featuring over sixty pilgrimage destinations worldwide and emphasizing both the personal quest and the multicultural and multi-faith dimension of sacred travel, On Pilgrimage is an indispensable guide for every spiritual traveler.
