Some essential resources in this area are Linda Kay Davidson's Pilgrimage in the Middle Ages: a research guide (New York: Garland, 1993), Gunter Stemberger's Jews and Christians in the Holy Land: Palestine in the fourth century (Edinburgh: T&T Clark, 2000), and Dee Dyas's Pilgrimage in medieval English literature, 700-1500 (Woodbridge, UK: D.S.
