Gardiner’s Pilgrim’s Way Now Online

The first edition of Eileen Gardiner’s The Pilgrim’s Way to St. Patrick’s Purgatory is now available online. This traces the medieval pilgrim’s route that began in Dublin and ended at Lough Derg in County Donegal. Today the Pilgrim’s Way stretches across the boundaries of the Irish Republic and Northern Ireland and brings the modern traveller on a journey through the medieval past and the fragmentary riches that remain today. It provides a cultural itinerary that can be travelled by car or bike, on foot, and even partly by boat, through one of the loveliest landscapes of Ireland and Europe.
This online edition is enhanced with descriptive text; analysis of the textual, visual and archaeological evidence; photos, plans and elevations; an interactive map of the route; bibliography and discussion of the European pilgrimage phenomenon, including a “Taxonomy of Medieval Pilgrimage.”
A new print edition will soon be available in both hardcover and paperback. Please subscribe to our Status postings for updates. This site is one part of Eileen Gardiner’s ongoing Hell-on-Line project.
