BIBLIOGRAPHY: in two forms (by subject area and alphabetical)

During three decades of studying pilgrimage traditions and sacred places I have consulted more than 2000 books and scholarly journals. The two bibliographies presented here contain the best of this material. These bibliographies are frequently updated and readers are encouraged to email recommendations of other books.
