Overall, Webb presents a helpful introduction to medieval pilgrimage. As she admits in her preface, this text is written mainly for students, and this aspect is present throughout the book. She does, however, handle the subject well, and opens up many possibilities for further inquiry. While the notes could indicate other scholarship that works more extensively on specific topics, her bibliography does generally point toward other works worth reading.

Perhaps the most positive quality of the book
