The Crossway is Guy Stagg‘s beautifully written account of his ten-month walk from Canterbury to Jerusalem. Following medieval pilgrimage routes through Western Europe, the Balkans, and the Middle East, he stayed each night with monks, nuns, priests, and families, gaining a rare insight into the lives of contemporary believers.
Recovering after mental illness, the pilgrimage forces Stagg to test the strength of his recovery. It also leaves him wondering: what power might ritual have today for someone without faith?
We are delighted to welcome acclaimed historian and travel writer Jason Goodwin to join Guy in conversation.
