Book Description:

The cultural power of sacred places seems to have diminished little, and perhaps even grown, in the modern era. Participation in pilgrimages has increased immensely in recent decades as greater numbers of people are able to travel the world to visit holy sites, partake in ceremonies and rituals, and add another dimension to the expression of their faith.

About the Author:

Norbert C. Brockman, SM, PhD, is professor emeritus of international relations at St. Mary's University, San Antonio, TX.
