Here’s a beautiful post from my terrific former St Hilda’s colleague, Dr Kathryne Beebe. Katy has been working on Felix Fabri’s accounts of his pilgrimages to the Holy Land in the 1480s. His day-by-day accounts were read by enclosed nuns so that they might make an ‘imaginary pilgrimage’ to Jerusalem and beyond without leaving their cloisters. Katy and I had a wonderful time putting together text, images and music for a performance to illustrate the real and imagined journeys, which we gave with Consort Iridiana at New College Chapel, Oxford.
