This chapter explores pilgrimage as both a guiding model for the work of comparative theology itself as well as a subject of comparative study. While comparative theology has traditionally studied texts exclusively, pilgrimage as a subject of comparative theology opened up the methodological options for comparative theology organically, as I became a scholar and practitioner of pilgrimage myself in conversation with other pilgrims. Ethnographic sources, as well as written sources, thus inform the case studies of pilgrimage discussed in this chapter. I argue that expanding the methodological options beyond ancient texts often written by men of dominant cultures, can help create theology with “legs,” a theology informed by many voices journeying together.
