Several students will be walking to support Pilgrimage for Our Children's Future

Medieval Studies regularly offers study tours to European destinations. One of these is on medieval Spain, and is conducted as a walk along the Camino de Santiago. The Camino is the traditional pilgrimage route from France across northwestern Spain to Santiago de Compostela, the legendary burial site of St. James. One of the great medieval pilgrimages and an outstanding itinerary for medieval monuments and landscapes, it has enjoyed a remarkable revival in recent years, attracting European Union sponsorship, the attention of media stars, and hundreds of thousands of walkers and pilgrims.
In this two-week study tour, which was offered for credit as a spring course in 2007 and 2008 and will be offered again as spring course in 2010, participants will walk in May-June along the last 200 miles of the route from the medieval city of León to Santiago. The group will meet each day to share their experiences and consider the medieval and pre-modern setting and monuments along the route. The group will also meet periodically during the spring 2008 semester to discuss reading assignments and prepare for the walk.
