Trade paperback with French wrap covers in new condition
"From the time I was five years old I knew France to be an enchanting country, a place of dreams..".
For Anne McPherson, this impression became more and more entrenched with the passing years. In Walking to the Saints, she visits time-honored sites along France's medieval pilgrimage routes to Santiago de Compostela, reflecting on the architecture, the spiritual universe of medieval people, and the connections and contradictions between earlier theology and contemporary feminist thought. At the same time she discovers that each site, with its sainted patron and antique heroes, mirrors part of her own life's journey. With intelligence, freshness and wit, Anne McPherson invites readers to join her in walking to the saints.
The text is complemented by original, evocative drawings by well-known Canadian artist Tony Urquhart.
