Image and Pilgrimage in Chriatian Culture May 13, 2007
The book will be an answer to those who are looking for some reasons why such kind of phenomenona, like pilgrimages are still observed in the modern world. Victor Turner repeatedly talks of signifiers and signified and in the book his focus is very much on Marian devotion.
