Welcome to children’s pilgrimage!

Please try again later. Kindle Edition Verified Purchase. I loved this darling little Christian children's story-And I am not a child. Very old fashioned and innocent, dialogue, yet many realistic and frightening situations. The story comes together nicely, as sweet children's stories often did, back in this era. Dangerous circumstances and risks-but divine guidence both leads and protects as Cecile seeks the will of her newly discovered guide, Jesus, sensing and obeying his unseen prompts. She is a kind and selfless child, full of faith and filled with grace.

Some unstandardized spellings and old, unfamiliar words may distract a few of the readers. Just discovered this old fashioned writer But what a journey getting there! Think of Little Women with a British twist. One person found this helpful. My grandmother kept this book in her linen closet. Every time we would visit, I would hide myself away in the guest bedroom, shut the door and curl up with this book.

My grandmother was given this book for Christmas in The story is about two children left destitute who are on their way to the 'celestial city' as some call it. It's the view of a very young and naive person but yet who is also wise and exacting. It has happy places and sad places and places where you will wonder what is going to happen next. I think it a must read. See all 3 reviews. Amazon Giveaway allows you to run promotional giveaways in order to create buzz, reward your audience, and attract new followers and customers.

In the first movement, Nicholas, an eloquent shepherd from the Rhineland in Germany, [3] tried to lead a group across the Alps and into Italy in the early spring of Nicholas said that the sea would dry up before them and allow his followers to cross into the Holy Land.

Rather than intending to fight the Saracens , he said that the Muslim kingdoms would be defeated when their citizens converted to Christianity. Splitting into two groups, the crowds took different roads through Switzerland. Two out of every three people on the journey died, while many others returned to their homes.

They immediately marched to the harbor, expecting the sea to divide before them; when it did not many became bitterly disappointed. A few accused Nicholas of betraying them, while others settled down to wait for God to change his mind, since they believed that it was unthinkable he would not eventually do so. The Genovese authorities were impressed by the little band, and they offered citizenship to those who wished to settle in their city. Most of the would-be Crusaders took up this opportunity.

The remaining ones departed for Germany after the Pontiff exhorted them to be good and to return home to their families. Nicholas did not survive the second attempt across the Alps; back home his father was arrested and hanged under pressure from angry families whose relatives had perished while following the child. Some of the most dedicated members of this Crusade were later reported to have wandered to Ancona and Brindisi ; none are known to have reached the Holy Land. The second movement was led by a twelve-year-old [3] French shepherd boy named Stephen of Cloyes , who said in June that he bore a letter for the king of France from Jesus.

Large gangs of youth around his age were drawn to him, most of whom claimed to possess special gifts of God and thought themselves miracle workers.

Attracting a following of over 30, adults and children, he went to Saint-Denis , where he was seen to cause miracles. On the orders of Philip II , advised by the University of Paris , the people were implored to return home. Philip himself did not appear impressed, especially since his unexpected visitors were led by a mere child, and refused to take them seriously.

Stephen, however, was not dissuaded, and began preaching at a nearby abbey. From Saint-Denis, Stephen traveled around France, spreading his messages as he went, promising to lead charges of Christ to Jerusalem. Although the Church was skeptical, many adults were impressed by his teaching.

They survived by begging for food, while the vast majority seem to have been disheartened by the hardship of this journey and returned to their families. Raedts does not consider the sources after to be authoritative, and of those before , he considers only about 20 to be authoritative. Prior to Raedts's study of , there had only been a few historical publications researching the Children's Crusade. The earliest were by the Frenchman G. They analyzed the sources but did not analyze the story. American medievalist Dana Carleton Munro —14 , according to Raedts, provided the best analysis of the sources to date and was the first to significantly provide a convincingly sober account of the Crusade stripped of legends.

Hansbery —9 published a correction of Munro's work, but it has since been discredited as based on an unreliable source. Alphandery first published his ideas about the crusade in in an article which was later published in book form in He considered the story of the crusade to be an expression of the medieval cult of the Innocents, as a sort of sacrificial rite in which the Innocents gave themselves up for the good of Christendom ; however, he based his ideas on some of the most untrustworthy sources.

Adolf Waas saw the Children's Crusade as a manifestation of chivalric piety and as a protest against the glorification of the holy war. Mayer further developed Alphandery's ideas of the Innocents, saying children were the chosen people of God because they were the poorest; recognizing the cult of poverty, he said that "the Children's Crusade marked both the triumph and the failure of the idea of poverty.

It was this recognition that undermined all other interpretations, [8] except perhaps that of Norman Cohn who saw it as a chiliastic movement in which the poor tried to escape the misery of their everyday lives.
