Pilgrim Narratives in Dialogue

    Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapterScientificpeer-review


    One of the most fruitful sets of data for understanding pilgrims’ experiences and motivations has always been the collection of narratives produced by pilgrims themselves. To understand more clearly the stories that surround a pilgrimage, we might distinguish between three levels of pilgrim narratives, based on the different manifestations of the pilgrim writer: the individual, the institutional, and the anonymous pilgrim writer. This chapter proposes to shed light on the interconnectedness of the different types of Dutch pilgrim narratives produced on
    and about the Camino to Santiago de Compostela, but also on the other genres that make their appearance in this field, such as online travel writing, TVdocumentaries, webcomics, and literary bestsellers.
