On The Pilgrim Way to Trondheim
Edited by: Stein Thue
After Norway's patron saint, Olav Haraldsson, fell at the battle of Stiklestad in 1030, Nidaros (now Trondheim) and the grave of Saint Olav became a destination for people seeking salvation. This updated booklet is a guide for modern pilgrims who want to follow in the footsteps of those earlier wanderers. Today's pilgrim paths give the contemporary wanderer a sense of what pilgrims in the Middle Ages went through on their way to the shrine in Trondheim. All the paths and routes to Trondheim are described with accompanying pictures and maps. The book also contains brief texts about Saint Olav, Stiklestad, Nidaros Cathedral, and the medieval landscape, as well as useful information about today's Trondheim and its many attractions.
