`Review from previous edition It is difficult to do justice to the scope of the book, and the huge range of scholarship on which it is based, in several languages and in several disciplines . . . a study worthy of its troubled and complex history.' Mortality
`Colin Morris guides his reader through this complex history and draws on the full range of documentary, literary and visual evidence to illustrate his theme. This work makes a significant contribution to our understanding of the religious life and though of the medieval west. ' History Journal
`The merits of this magnificent book are so various that the reviewer's chief imperative must be to urge others to read it . . . The breadth of reference is simply astonishing and what Morris writes seems so self-evidently true that one is tempted to forget that before him no scholar has stated it with such clarity.' Journal of Ecclesiastical History
`[a] remarkable and brilliant study . . . a magnificiently conceived and executed work whose impressive span is supported by Morris's wonderfully clear and accessible prose . . . masterly and fascinating.' English Historical Review
`Offers lavish detail on a wide range of subjects.' TLS
`This is a valuable book. It covers a subject which is central to Christian history and should be read by everyone interested in the holy places and the role in the West of pilgrimage to them.' The Tablet
