Each year, 200 million people embark on a pilgrimage of some kind. We have been making ritual journeys for millennia, and while most of us have seen our mobility curtailed in recent months because of the pandemic, the impulse to travel somewhere sacred to us remains. In her new book “We Are Pilgrims,” Victoria Preston seeks to understand the reasons why we set forth in search of solace, liberation, faith, and enlightenment.
I hope you enjoy this wide-ranging conversation with Victoria Preston about pilgrims and pilgrimages.
