'The work is highly engaging, and well worth looking through if dealing with the subject of late medieval architecture, pilgrimage, as well as broader aspects of aesthetics, iconography or material culture.' Hortulus 'Architecture and Pilgrimage, 1000-1500. Southern Europe and Beyond is, in sum, an invigorating volume because it encourages the reader to think again about familiar objects and monuments, be they scallop shells or Marian shrines, in new ways and in new relationships. Many of the studies are especially effective in urging deeper thought about the movement of the spectator/participant and about the nature of the similarities between or among a group of monuments.'
