The Healing Power of the Santuario de Chimayó

NYU Press

This chapter opens with an account of the 2015 Good Friday pilgrimage based on the author’s participant observation, and then moves to an account of the history of the walking pilgrimage as well as other smaller pilgrimages to the Santuario de Chimayó. The chapter concludes with a detailed analysis of several theories of pilgrimage and its relationship to religious tourism and how these theories relate to the pilgrimage and tourism at the Santuario. The Santuario provides a fascinating case of phenomena related to the commodification of religious sites.

Keywords:   pilgrimage, Good Friday, theories of pilgrimage, tourism, commodification of religious sites
