WHO Talk – European Pilgrimage

Tuesday 15 February 2022 7:45pm at Wymeswold Memorial Hall

Elizabeth Tingle will talk about Pilgrimage from the British Isles to Compostela – 1000 years of travel.

For more than a thousand years pilgrims from the British Isles have taken the camino to Santiago de Compostela in northern Spain to visit the shrine of St James. This talk looks at some of the pilgrims’ stories from the Middle Ages onwards, told by visitors travelling from the British Isles and beyond.

Liz is Professor of History at De Montfort University and one of her main areas of research is pilgrimage.  You may recall she and Martin did an excellent ‘double header’ at Willoughby church a few summers ago.

This talk will take place in the WHO’s usual venue: the Jubilee Room of Wymeswold Memorial Hall, Clay Street, Wymeswold, LE12 6TY and start promptly at 7.45 p.m.. Non-members most welcome but will be asked to contribute £3.00. There is a lift to the Jubilee Room if visitors have difficulty with stairs.
