New from OUP: The Origins of Pilgrimage

This looks interesting… too bad I’ve got no free time in which to read it. 😉

Pilgrimage in Graeco-Roman and Early Christian Antiquity
Edited by Jas Elsner and Ian Rutherford

This book presents a range of case studies of pilgrimage in Graeco-Roman antiquity, drawing on a wide variety of evidence. It rejects the usual reluctance to accept the category of pilgrimage in pagan polytheism and affirms the significance of sacred mobility not only as an important factor in understanding ancient religion and its topographies but also as vitally ancestral to later Christian practice.
