Some aspects of pilgrimage addressed here, such as pilgrim chants, have only rarely, if at all, been discussed elsewhere…As we have learned to expect from David Frankfurter, this collection evidences a steadfast commitment to a "regional approach to Christianity and other developing religions". David Frankfurter is surely to be congratulated for bringing together a collection of essays representing a broad array of the fascinating new approaches to late antique pilgrimage.'
