Cultural Heritage, Spiritual Journeys, and Pilgrimages

  1. 1. CULTURAL HERITAGE, SPIRITUAL JOURNEYS, AND PILGRIMAGES Subject Guide by Elena Stuart
  2. 2. Introduction Pilgrimage is understood as a departure from daily life on a journey in search of spiritual blessing. This bibliography has been prepared to enlarge the collection of a large public library on Cultural Heritage, Spiritual Journeys, and Pilgrimages. A significant part of this bibliography devoted to resources about the spiritual pilgrimage to Santiago de Compostela as the main Christian pilgrimage destination. The titles have been chosen in a variety of formats to meet the basic research and general interest needs of adult citizens using a public library. Most of the resources are reviewed and review sources are listed at the end of each description.
  3. 3. Topic 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.
