The Camino de Santiago was one of the three great pilgrimages of Medieval Europe. Many of you have walked the Camino, or have plans to do so, each for his or her own personal type of pilgrimage. But what is a pilgrimage? Simon Reeve explores that question in a 3-part series made for the BBC called Pilgrimage. Join us as we discuss Part 2 — "Santiago and Rome". You should watch the program on your own beforehand, then we'll meet to discuss and share our insights.
Episode 3, The Holy Land" will be on Wednesday, June 24th .
Some ideas for the meeting: Had you seen this series before? What words would you use to recommend the film to others - or not? If you've walked the Camino, do you think Reeve did it justice? What do you think a pilgrimage is?
