Pilgrimage: A Spiritual Journey

  • Course Dates: Sat 7 February 2015, 10:30 am to 4:30 pm

This one-day course explores the spirituality of Christian pilgrimage.

Participants will be introduced to the origins of Christian pilgrimage to Jerusalem and explore how the idea of pilgrimage developed and shaped Christian spirituality in the Middle Ages.

Many medieval people made a journey to Jerusalem and other holy sites, others visited miniature pilgrimage sites at home. This practise is reflected in our contemporary ideas of the stations of the cross and walking the labyrinth.

There will be a unique opportunity to walk a labyrinth within Salisbury Cathedral and reflect on how pilgrimage in all its forms can enhance spiritual practice today.

No prior knowledge or experience is needed. This is a repeat of the course from October 2014.
