📒The Pilgrimage Of Grace And The Politics Of The 1530s ✍ R. W. Hoyle
📝The Pilgrimage of Grace and the Politics of the 1530s Book Synopsis : This is the first full account of the Pilgrimage of Grace since 1915. In the autumn and winter of 1536, Henry VIII faced risings first in Lincolnshire, then throughout northern England. These rebellions posed the greatest threat of any encountered by a Tudor monarch. The Pilgrimage of Grace has traditionally been assumed to have been a spontaneous protest against the Dissolution of the Monasteries, but R. W. Hoyle's lively and intriguing study reveals the full story. Professor Hoyle examines the origins of the rebellions in Louth and their spread; he offers new interpretations of the behaviour of many of the leading rebels, including Robert Aske and Thomas, Lord Darcy; and he reveals how the engine behind the uprising was the commons, and notably the artisans, of some of the smaller northern towns. Casting new light on the personality of Henry VIII himself, Professor Hoyle shows how the gentry of the North worked to dismantle the movement and help the crown neutralize it by guile as events unfolded towards their often tragic conclusions.
📒The Pilgrimage Of Grace ✍ M. L. Bush
📝The Pilgrimage of Grace Book Synopsis : This book studies the largest insurrection to occur in England between the Peasants' Revolt of 1381 and the English Civil War of the 164Os. It concentrates upon the nine rebel armies that were mobilised in the North during the month of October 1536, examining their recruitment, organisation, grievances and aims, as well as the impact they made upon the government of Henry VIII. Operating principally from original sources, it revises the standard work of the Dodds and appraises the research produced in the subject over the last thirty years. Bush proposes that, as a rising of the commons, the aim of the rebellion was to safeguard the commonwealth as well as to protect Christ's faith, arguing that it cannot be fully explained as a reaction against the Henrician Reformation. On the other hand, in adopting the idiom of a rising of the commons, it did not become simply a popular uprising, but was rather a conjunction of protest, with gentlemen, clergy and commons establishing working alliances with each other against the government. Besides a study of revolt, this book provides a vital insight into the cultural, religious, political and social beliefs of sixteenth-century England.

📒The Pilgrimage To Santiago ✍ Edwin Mullins
📝The Pilgrimage to Santiago Book Synopsis : The Long Road to Heaven", the annual pilgrimage to the Galician city of Santiago de Compostela has taken place for over a thousand years. In the great cathedral of Santiago are said to lie the bones of St. James of the Great, cousin to Christ, an original disciple and later "resurrected" as the legendary slayer of the Moors. From the Middle Ages onwards, this most evocative of Christian shrines has attracted pilgrims to the Spanish city from all over Europe and further afield.

📝The Pilgrimage Road to Santiago Book Synopsis : The road across northern Spain to Santiago de Compostela in the northwest was one of the three major Christian pilgrimage routes during the Middle Ages, leading pilgrims to the resting place of the Apostle St. James. Today, the system of trails and roads that made up the old pilgrimage route is the most popular long-distance trail in Europe, winding from the heights of the Pyrenees to the gently rolling fields and woods of Galicia. Hundreds of thousands of modern-day pilgrims, art lovers, historians, and adventurers retrace the road today, traveling through a stunningly varied landscape which contains some of the most extraordinary art and architecture in the western world. For any visitor, the Road to Santiago is a treasure trove of historical sites, rustic Spanish villages, churches and cathedrals, and religious art. To fully appreciate the riches of this unique route, look no further than The Pilgrimage Road to Santiago, a fascinating step-by-step guide to the cultural history of the Road for pilgrims, hikers, and armchair travelers alike. Organized geographically, the book covers aspects of the terrain, places of interest, history, artistic monuments, and each town and village's historical relationship to the pilgrimage. The authors have led five student treks along the Road, studying the art, architecture, and cultural sites of the pilgrimage road from southern France to Compostela. Their lectures, based on twenty-five years of pilgrimage scholarship and fieldwork, were the starting point for this handbook.
