Saints and Holy Places of Yorkshire A Pilgrims' Guide to God's Own County, by Gavin Wakefield

SKU SP-9781789591033

Yorkshire has a long and rich Christian history, stretching back beyond the Vikings to Roman Britain. This unique guidebook takes us to meet some of the people and places that formed Yorkshire’s Christian heritage, from St Hilda of Whitby through to William Wilberforce. This is both a practical and spiritual guidebook to the many holy places in God’s Own County. A seven-day route takes in many popular—and some less well-known—places in Yorkshire’s unique landscape. Explore the sites where some of the key characters from different periods of Christian history lived and worked. Discover the fascinating history of the people and places, with historical notes, practical information and prayers for both visitors and armchair pilgrims alike. Saints and Holy Places of Yorkshire enables visitors to the many holy places in God’s Own County to understand more fully the lives of the Christians who are responsible for the pilgrimage connection. The intention is to help the reader develop their spiritual life through reflection on the lives of familiar and less familiar figures from the Christian story in Yorkshire. Each Day has four elements—People, Place, Prayer, and Practicalities—and brief information about other places with spiritual significance to visit in the vicinity.​ The book can be used by individuals and groups, whether they are visiting some of the places referred to in the book or are seeking to enrich their spiritual lives as “armchair pilgrims”.
