Presentation

On Monday 24 July 2023 the Instituto de Estudios Gallegos Padre Sarmiento (IEGPS), a joint centre of the Spanish National Research Council (CSIC) and the Government of Galicia (Xunta de Galicia), will begin with a series of international seminars focused on medieval and modern themes.

The Instituto de Estudios Gallegos Padre Sarmiento is located in the historic city of Santiago de Compostela, an important pilgrimage centre, registered as a World Heritage Site by UNESCO in 1985. Thus, the first edition seeks to explore pilgrimages as ancestral practices of humanity and, more specifically, to analyse and discuss the heterogeneous role of women on pilgrimage routes and shrines from the Middle Ages to the Early Modern Age.
