Thursday 14th September 2017
De Montfort University, Leicester

The purpose of this one-day colloquium is to examine a particular manifestation of interiority and its relationship to material experience: that of the spiritual journey or pilgrimage. This could take the form of an imagined real journey, such as Louis Richeome’s The Pilgrim of Loreto or an allegorical voyage such as John Bunyan’s Pilgrim’s Progress. This meeting has as its objective an exploration of spiritual and interior journeys, understood broadly.
