The Pilgrim's Guide to Santiago de Compostela

The Pilgrim's Guide to Santiago de Compostela

by William Melczer

  • GUIDEBOOK
  • 1993
  • PAPER
  • 350 PAGES

This is the original guide used by 12th-century pilgrims along the sacred way, reprinted with an extensive introduction by a professor of medieval studies, a long section of endnotes and a gazetteer of all the sites along the route. It's an excellent, hugely informative presentation of this curiosity of a text, which is remarkably akin to a modern trekking guide.  (SPN42, $25.00)
