Genre:Irish History / Irish Interest


A complete guide to the world of pilgrimage in medieval Ireland, this book brings the reader on a tour of how Christianity was celebrated in medieval times. Including both the pilgrimages within Ireland and the extraordinary journeys that were undertaken outside of Ireland, the reader can learn about these arduous undertakings that were true testaments to the lengths people went to in order to profess their faith. Written by archaeologist Louise Nugent, it explores the history in great detail, and discovers what we can learn from the evidence that was left behind by these people long ago. Filled with photographs of the sites as they are now, alongside maps of the paths that were walked, this book helps the reader understand the paths walked before them, and how they can undertake such pilgrimages today.
