Review:

'"The 27 essays in this immense two-volume, 1000-page tome each present a case study of the interaction between the visual arts and the phenomenally widespread and tenacious practice of religious pilgrimage in the late Middle Ages. These ambitious volumes point to the great deal of interest in the field of "pilgrimage arts...".the contributors deserve sincere congratulations for assembling the most extensive and useful group of studies about the intersection of image and pilgrimage in Northern Europe ever published."' Kathryn M. Rudy, "Renaissance Quarterly," 2005. '"Each essay is meticulously researched and amply documented, and the volume includes an extensive international bibliography. It is also accompanied by a volume of plates to illustrate each essay. The collection is recommended for college libraries and will be of interest to historians of religion, spirituality, art and architecture, and the physical cultures of the high Middle Ages."' Wanda Zemler-Cizewski, "Theological Studies," 2006. "Cumulatively these essays make an impressive and reasonably coherent whole, although they cannot, of course, furnish a complete survey of northern European pilgrimage. One s attention is persistently drawn to the riches of the sources; it is hard to imagine a reader, however well-informed, who will not discover the unfamiliar and intriguing in text or footnotes. The editors have performed a big job pretty well ( )" Diana Webb, "Speculum" "This monumental volume of essays is a wonderful, albeit expensive addition to the literature on pilgrimage. The collection contains twenty-seven essays, and in the second volume are 348 black-and-white images that illustrate the articles. As the title indicates, the collection focuses on northern Europe and the British Isles ( ). Despite its size, this volume is nicely coherent and of uniformly high quality." Katherine L. French, State University of New York at New Paltz, "Sixteenth Century Journal""
