Im Zentrum dieser Ethnographie stehen Pilgerinnen und Pilger, die den Weg nach Mariazell, Österreichs bedeutendstem Pilgerort, zu Fuß zurücklegen. Barbara Sieferle hat für diese Feldforschung mehrere Pilgergruppen intensiv begleitet und fragt insbesondere nach den körperlichen Dimensionen ihres Tuns und Erlebens. Sie greift dazu phänomenologisch orientierte und praxistheoretische Ansätze der kulturanthropologischen Körperforschung auf und zeichnet ein lebensnahes Bild des Pilgerns. Das Gehen zu Fuß und die oftmals damit einhergehenden Anstrengungen, Religiosität, Sportivität, Naturverbundenheit und Gemeinschaftlichkeit analysiert die Autorin als zentrale Aspekte dieser vielschichtigen Praxis. Als Beitrag zu einer kultur- und gesellschaftswissenschaftlichen Körperforschung sensibilisiert die Studie für die Rolle des Körpers in der Konstitution sozialer Wirklichkeit insgesamt und weist damit über das Fallbeispiel des Pilgerns nach Mariazell hinaus. Dr. Barbara Sieferle studierte Ethnologie und Soziologie an der Albert-Ludwigs-Universität Freiburg und wurde 2017 an der Leopold-Franzens-Universität Innsbruck im Fach Europäische Ethnologie promoviert.

Was kennzeichnet die heutige Pilger-Renaissance? Welche theologische Bedeutung und Herausforderung bringt das Pilgern der Gegenwart mit sich? Roger Jensen verknüpft persönliche Erfahrungsberichte von Pilgern mit neuen Perspektiven der Sozial- und Geschichtswissenschaften und der Theologie. Er schafft damit eine breite Grundlage, um das Pilgern der Gegenwart zu verstehen. Jensen analysiert Martin Luthers Kritik am Pilgern und erkennt eine bisher unbeachtete Komplexität in Luther. Trägt Luthers Denkweise möglicherweise zu einer ökumenischen Theologie des Pilgerns bei? Bezugnehmend auf die Luther-Rezeption der skandinavischen Tradition der Schöpfungstheologie macht der Autor die heutigen Pilgererfahrungen zum Ausgangspunkt für einen lutherischen Beitrag zur ökumenischen Theologie des Pilgerns. What characterizes the contemporary renaissance of pilgrimage? Which theological challenges and implications does current pilgrimage practices create? With personal pilgrim experiences as a starting point, Jensen combines fresh perspectives from social sciences, historical studies and theology in unfolding a broad foundation for understanding pilgrimage today. Analysing Martin Luther’s critique of pilgrimage, Jensen discovers a hitherto unnoticed complexity in Luther. Possible Lutheran contributions to an ecumenical theology of pilgrimage are being discussed. Drawing on the Luther-reception of the Scandinavian creational theological tradition, the author makes present-day pilgrim experiences the starting point for a Lutheran contribution to a contemporary ecumenical theology of pilgrimage.

The Spanish Camino de Santiago, a pilgrimage rooted in the Medieval period and increasingly active today, has attracted a growing amount of both scholarly and popular attention. With its multiple points of departure in Spain and other European countries, its simultaneously secular and religious nature, and its international and transhistorical population of pilgrims, this particular pilgrimage naturally invites a wide range of intellectual inquiry and scholarly perspectives. This volume fills a gap in current pilgrimage studies, focusing on contemporary representations of the Camino de Santiago. Complementing existing studies of the Camino’s medieval origins, it situates the Camino as a modern experience and engages interdisciplinary perspectives to present a theoretical framework for exploring the most central issues that concern scholars of pilgrimage studies today. Contributors explore the contemporary meaning of the Camino through an interdisciplinary lens that reflects the increasing permeability between academic disciplines and fields, bringing together a wide range of theoretical and critical perspectives (cultural studies, literary studies, globalization studies, memory studies, ethnic studies, postcolonial studies, cultural geographies, photography, and material culture). Chapters touch on a variety of genres (blogs, film, graphic novels, historical novels, objects, and travel guides), and transnational perspectives (Australia, the Arab world, England, Spain, and the United States).

Since the 1950s, millions of American Christians have traveled to the Holy Land to visit places in Israel and the Palestinian territories associated with Jesus’s life and death. Why do these pilgrims choose to journey halfway around the world? How do they react to what they encounter, and how do they understand the trip upon return? This book places the answers to these questions into the context of broad historical trends, analyzing how the growth of mass-market evangelical and Catholic pilgrimage relates to changes in American Christian theology and culture over the last sixty years, including shifts in Jewish-Christian relations, the growth of small group spirituality, and the development of a Christian leisure industry. Drawing on five years of research with pilgrims before, during and after their trips, Walking Where Jesus Walked offers a lived religion approach that explores the trip’s hybrid nature for pilgrims themselves: both ordinary—tied to their everyday role as the family’s ritual specialists, and extraordinary—since they leave home in a dramatic way, often for the first time. Their experiences illuminate key tensions in contemporary US Christianity between material evidence and transcendent divinity, commoditization and religious authority, domestic relationships and global experience. Hillary Kaell crafts the first in-depth study of the cultural and religious significance of American Holy Land pilgrimage after 1948. The result sheds light on how Christian pilgrims, especially women, make sense of their experience in Israel-Palestine, offering an important complement to top-down approaches in studies of Christian Zionism and foreign policy.

In the tradition of Colin Fletcher's The Man Who Walked Through Time and William Least Heat-Moon's Blue Highways, Edward F. Stanton has written a quietly beautiful and engrossing account of his own pilgrimage. Road of Stars to Santiago is a personal story of his journey along what has been called "the premier cultural route of Europe." "I undertook a five-hundred-mile walk along the ancient Camino de Santiago, from the French Pyrenees to Santiago de Compostella in northwest Spain, the supposed burial site of the apostle St. James the Elder, and beyond to Finisterre, Land's End on the Atlantic coast. "On my journey I followed the old road whenever possible, passing through mountains, medieval forests and remote villages, as well as modern towns and cities. I slept in fields, abandoned schools or wherever I could, on a thirty-day trip that brought me into contact with a whole cross-section of Spanish society, and with pilgrims from France, Belgium, Holland, Germany and England. "Most of the book has to do with my own trials and joys on the Road: the physical struggle to walk about twenty miles a day in the heat or rain, to find a place to eat and sleep; with the psychological changes that take place when one leaves home, family and routine; with the contradictions inherent to a pilgrimage in the late twentieth centuiy; with experiences that ranged from the spiritual to the picaresque; with the people I met on the way -- from shepherds and peasan ts to astrologers and philosophers. There are plenty of humorous situations and unexpected turns." -- Edward F. Stanton
