The Way of St James has been a pilgrimage event for over 1000 years as people have flocked to the site of the burial of the apostle St James the Great. Legend states that the body of James was carried by boat from Jerusalem to Santiago de Compostela in Spain, where a church was erected on the site of the tomb. There is no single route for the pilgrims to follow, but there are several key paths. Kathleen Ashley and Marilyn Deegan capture the experience of the medieval pilgrim through an examination of art, historical and social contexts as well as themes related to pilgrimage such as music, legend and ritual. The book is copiously illustrated with new photographs by Marilyn Deegan showcasing the visual legacy of the medieval pilgrimage experience in sculpture, painting and architecture. Interwoven in Kathleen Ashley's narrative text are original sources bringing to us the voice of these men and women who set out on what was then an epic journey.

Review:

'The great contribution the book provides is the marvelous illustrations that serve as windows into the journey of a pilgrim ...the images are nothing short of extraordinary.' --Church History

'With more than 250 evocative colour illustrations, most specially taken, all accompanied by informative captions (a task in itself) and an enthusiastic and informative text, this is a book to be treasured, consulted, and quietly dwelt upon.' --Art Newsletter

'It is engagingly written, finely balances the academic and the popular, and does not fall between the two areas. This is a valuable contribution to the literature of pilgrimage.' Colum Hourihane 'Being a Pilgrim considers themes absent from more superficial books on the pilgrimage, and the beautiful photographs and printed images by Marilyn Deegan are wider in range than is usual.' --Burlington Magazine
