Women Pilgrims in Late Medieval England investigates how widespread women pilgrims were, their motivation, the social and familial dynamics of medieval pilgrimage and the representation of women pilgrims in literature, art and historical documents. This stimulating study will herald the way for further discussion and research into Medieval women pilgrims.
