Pilgrimage in the Age of Globalisation

Constructions of the Sacred and Secular in Late Modernity

Editor(s): Nelia Hyndman-Rizk

Book Description

This edited collection brings together a series of ethnographically grounded studies on sacred and secular pilgrimage in the age of globalisation from around the world. Pilgrimage is explored as a distinctive form of mobility in late modernity, which emphasises inner transformation. Thus, the studies in this volume show how pilgrimage unifies physical and metaphysical mobility into a holistic project of self-realisation through motion.
