Pilgrim Road to Nidaros, by Alison Raju
Sist oppdatert 22.11.2008 21:37
 

English-language Pilgrimguide to Nidaros
Published April 2002.
ISBN 1 85284 314 4

This is a walker's guide to the 643 km medieval pilgrimguide from Oslo to Nidaros (Trondheim) cathedral, where Saint Olav (king of Norway and responsible for much of the conversion of the country to Christianity) was buried. His shrine, once the focus of many miracles, was also the culmination of the most important pilgrim route in Scandinavia. From the tent century until the Reformation it attracted pilgrims not only from Norway but also from Sweden, Denmark, Finland and Iceland.
Cleared and waymarked in 1997, the route has been "rediscovered" and is beeing actively promoted as a walking pilgrim path.

Much of the walking is on footpaths or historic tracs, and the waymarked route takes walkers on numerous short detours to places of historic, scenic or local interest. The walking is fairly strenuous, but involves no scrambling or exposed paths. A fairly fit walker could complete the whole route in about a month.
It can also be walked in sections, and the guide gives information on suitable points for leaving the route.

This is the only English-language guide to the pilgrim road. As well as giving directions for walking the route, it also provides information on places of interest along the way and on history of the pilgrimage, and gives suggestions for further reading and a glossary of geographical and useful terms.

Alison Raju is a former teacher of French, German and Spanish
to adults and the author of the Cicerone guides; The Way of Saint James: Le Puy to Santiago ­ A Walkers Guide and Via de la Plata: The Way of St. James: Seville to Santiago.
