This book is being published to mark the seventy-fifth anniversary of the revival of the Anglican Shrine of Our Lady at Walsingham, one of the great centures of pilgrimage in medieval times. In a series of essays, leading experts explore the ideas that underlie the historic connections between place, holiness and travel: they ask questions that bring the experience of the past to bear on the preoccupations of the twenty-first century: What is Christian about the Christian idea of sacred space? Where is sacred space to be found in modern art and literature? Has the element of the feminine been excluded from the sacred? How do conceptions of sacred space relate to the problems of city life today? The discussion spans centuries of religious experience and debate.
