The thesis Pilgrimage Matters: Administrative and Semiotic Landscapes of Contemporary Pilgrimage Realisations in Norway (2022) explores how pilgrimage has developed as a contemporary phenomenon in Norway from the 1990s. The St Olav Ways to Trondheim and the Sunniva Route to Selja are viewed in a comparative perspective. It is analysed how this development entails both heritagisation of religious history, renewal of religious practice within and outside of institutionalised religion as well as large-scale administrative projects to accommodate long-distance journeys along marked pilgrimage routes.
