Dr. David Sheffler is the Chairperson of the History Department at the University of North Florida. He’s made a career studying the education of ancient monks – that’s how he started his studies, anyway. Consequently, his work is firmly rooted in the medieval world of Europe, which put him on the path to studying the Camino. This episode hops from the history of the Camino to the personal experience of the walk, to the contemporary state of the path, and back to historical facts, without much of a roadmap, but that is the Camino way. I hope you enjoy this reflection on his work and experience as a scholar and a hiker.
