Talk by Dr. Tom Turpie based on his research for the Fife Pilgrim Way Project and will explore primary source evidence for pilgrimage and pilgrimage networks in Fife from the Early Middle Ages to the Reformation. It will aim to show how the changing types of saints and sites that were the focus on pilgrimage in Fife in the Middle Ages reflected broader Scottish and Western European fashions in veneration of the saints.

Medieval Markinch – a TripAdvisor Guide for Pilgrims

Sunday, January 21, 2018
3.30 pm
 Bruce Manson will approach this talk based upon his recent research into a remarkable church standing midway between Dunfermline and St Andrews. What were the obstacles facing pilgrims as they stepped from the boats on the shores of Fife? What kind of landscape did they face and how did it change over many centuries of pilgrimage? What routes might travellers have taken, how did they find their way and where did they find shelter? Finally, the talk will attempt to describe the interior of Markinch “minster”, as it was referred to by an early traveller. How did it change over these years and why?

The talk starts at 3.30pm and the exhibition will be open from 2.30pm.
