Format: Paperback
Pilgrimage to Heresy takes a very different look at the Camino de Santiago and suggests that not only is St. James not buried in the Cathedral but that the much visited sepulchre is occupied by Priscillian, once Bishop of Avila, and condemned to death in 385 on the grounds of "heresy and witchcraft": what an irony if it is true!
Intertwined with the historical narrative, we follow modern day pilgrims each of whom has his or her own reasons for pilgrimage.
An intelligent, thought-provoking read for anyone interested in going further into the story of the "Camino". Highly recommended.

HASH(0xa009775c) out of 5 stars The best book I have read all year Aug. 8 2008
By Miss J. M. Austin - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This is by far the best book that I have read all year. Part fact, part fiction, the book is borne from the authors own experience of walking the Camino, the pilgrimage route to Santiago de Compostella in northern Spain, loosely based on her own experiences, interwoven with 2 love stories, that of the 2 main characters, and that of Pricillian, the last Christian martyr, and his maybe(?) fictional love.
This is much more than a work of fiction, and comparisons to Dan Brown are unfortunate, since the book is nothing like his work, but so much more in depth.
This is a tale of love and beauty, a tale of triumph over adversity, but most of all, a tale of intrigue, which I heartily recommend.

HASH(0x9f9d8db0) out of 5 stars Pilgrimage to Heresy Feb. 14 2008
By Sylvia Baago - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
If you like mystery, intrigue, history, religion, philosophy, spirituality, travel and romance, tnen you need to read Pilgrimage to Heresy. The narrative centres on a real-life controversy about whose saintly bones actually lie buried in the Santiago de Compostela in northern Spain, a cathedral dedicated to St. James the Apostle. The action takes place along the Camino, an ancient pilgrimage route, and the drama unfolds amidst a colorful backdrop of the stories of various pilgrims from around the world, the challenging terrain,the spiritual journey of the main protagonist, Miranda, and a mysterious manuscript about Priscillian of Avila, an early Christian condemned to death on charge of heresy by the Catholic Church. Although a fictional account, the book raises many serious questions about church dogma, early Christian history and gnosticism and is based on extensive research. Well worth the read.

HASH(0x9fd75030) out of 5 stars Pilgrimage to Heresy April 20 2010
By Rachel Webb - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Pilgrimage to Heresy: Don't Believe Everything They Tell You by Tracy Saunders is a fascinating book whether or not you intend to walk the route to Santiago de Compostela. It's a superb tale that interweaves fact and fiction along the way. Miranda the main pilgrim is caught up in the tale of the camino and seeks to understand the truth of the trail.

Is it really St.James that is buried in the cathedral in Santiago de Compostela? If not who is it? And why do the Catholic Church allow the mystery to continue?

Miranda is on the 800 kilometre hike when she meets Kieran an intriguing character who's translating a book from Latin, that in itself is rather mysterious.

As they walk their dialogue tells his story and the history that drives him. Miranda becomes interested in the man, the tale and his work. Then he disappears along with his translation and the unravelling mystery deepens. Saunders develops both the mystery of his disappearance and the myths of St. James in great style.

Fact and fiction, truth and turmoil keep step with Miranda along the way as the narrative enlightens its readers to the controversy of centuries that non but Saunders seem to be addressing.

The missing translation adds another facet and introduces the fact turned fiction account of the early Christian church and Gnosticism which raises and challenges the belief of the reader.

The narrative style of this story keeps the reader in suspense and informs us without being too heavy-handed. Saunders opens the eyes of pilgrims, church historians and truth seekers alike in this great 800km long tale.
It's a great mystery, an enlightening read and a tale that needs telling again and again.

HASH(0x9fd69b64) out of 5 stars Wonderful Read Jan. 20 2013
By LaProfesoraFrida - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
"Pilgrimage to Heresy" pulled me into the story from the first paragraph. I was hooked and couldn't wait to find out what happened next.
I was drawn to the book because I walked El Camino de Santiago de Compostela two years ago and learned more of the history of the Camino while walking it than from any guidebooks I read previous to the journey. The main character of "Pilgrimage to Heresy" encounters the same phenomenon but on a much grander scale! The author has done her research and has created a beautiful work of historical fiction.
The experiences of the main character are so true to life, it is obvious that the author has lived the Camino. "Write what you know" is what they say, and the author certainly knows what she writes!
I highly recommend this book to anyone who is interested in walking the Camino, has walked the Camino, or someone who is just interested in the history of the Camino.
