Pilgrims and Pilgrimage

Michael Rear

Preface by the Bishops of East Anglia and Norwich.

A new edition of Fr Michael Rear’s definitive book, originally published to celebrate the 950th anniversary of the foundation of the Shrine of Our Lady in Walsingham.

Michael Rear is uniquely qualified to write this book. His experience of many years of ministry in Walsingham, together with his meticulous research, fluent style of writing and choice of illustrations in the 32 pages of colour and 16 pages of black and white illustrations have combined to produce what will certainly become the standard work on pilgrims and pilgrimage to the Holy Land of Walsingham. This comprehensive work begins with the pre-Christian era and is brought through triumph and tragedy right up to the present day.

In an exciting new development the book chronicles the recent re-discovery of the mediaeval image of Our Lady crowned by King Henry III and dating to 1220-1230.

Fr Michael Rear, now a retired priest of the Diocese of East Anglia, has been leading pilgrimages to Rome for decades. He is the author of Rome: A Pilgrim Guide Book also published by Gracewing.
