In 2017 a pilgrimage set out from London to Jerusalem to mark the centenary of the Balfour Declaration and the fiftieth anniversary of the Israeli occupation of the Palestinian Territories. More than one hundred walkers took part. This is their story – travellers’ tales on paths of pilgrimage and conquest, from monasteries and mountain passes to Bedouin camps and desert wadis. Through Roman roads and refugee routes, Justin Butcher traces the pull of Jerusalem on the European imagination – the many strands of legend and fable radiating from the Holy Land and its three faiths.

Chaired by Canon Dr Dagmar Winter
