Book Reviews

 'The author carries her learning lightly and produces a text that will prove an enjoyable read as well as a learned introduction to a fascinating subject.' (P.P.F.)
  Contemporary Review 1st Oct.2002.

'This is a scholarly essay thankfully avoiding the academic stodge that so often befalls this kind of work. No sacred stone is left unturned as the great journeys of the Middle Ages are recounted...To Be A Pilgrim is a well-rounded work and is to be thoroughly recommended to those with an inquiring mind and a sharp eye for history.'
  Worcester Evening News, 25th May 2002.

'This book is an admirable account of medieval pilgrimage...The book is in a large almost coffee table format that lends it to stunning photographs and reproductions from medieval material. The format of the text is also helpful...'
  Catholic Times, 25th Aug. 2002.

'I have just read Sarah Hopper's "To be a Pilgrim' and found it thoroughly engrossing with details of pilgrimage journeys which included some excellent photographs and images of medieval art....This book has started me looking again at the saints and the medieval religious life'.

 'A well-illustrated introduction to the great journeys and hardships undertaken by thousands of pilgrims from across medieval Europe...This general study is supported by many colour photographs of places, artefacts, shrines and manuscript illuminations'.
  Oxbow Books 2002.
